Storyboard Text

  • He was out hunting one day, driving deer into the nets, when a nymph named Echo saw him, a nymph whose way of talking was peculiar in that she could not start a conversation nor fail to answer other people talking.
  • "Let us get together!" And, to help her words, out of the woods she came, with arms all ready to fling around his neck. But he retreated: "Keep your hands off," he cried, "and do not touch me! I would die before I gave you a chance at me."
  • Narcissus for saw an image in the pool, and fell in love with that unbodied hope, and found a substance in what was only shadow. He looks in wonder, charmed by himself, spell-bound, and no more moving than any marble statue.
  • "What love, whose love, has ever been more cruel? You woods should know: you have given many lovers places to meet and hide in; has there ever, through the long centuries, been anyone who has pined away as I do?"
  • "Farewell, dear boy, beloved in vain!" were his last words, and Echo called the same words to him.
  • But when they sought his body, they found nothing, only a flower with a yellow center surrounded with white petals.
