"As soon as she is finished with her prayer,
a heavy numbness grips her limbs; thin bark
begins to gird her tender frame, her hair
is changed to leaves, her arms to boughs; her feet-
so keen to race before - are now held fast
by sluggish roots; the girl's head vanishes, becoming a treetop. All that is left
of Daphne is her radiance."
-from 'The Metamorphoses of Ovid,' translated by Allen Mandelbaum
