A haiku about a greek myth you might know.

A Vain Flower

Queen of flowers

Queen of flowers Perfection of beauty

Queen of flowers Perfection of beauty Fair yet vain

Has a sunshine's grace White tender face Narcissus in bloom

Near the lake So calm and quiet We place you

Cruel youth so fair Glistening dark hair A look of deep frown

Not perfect this girl Same for that girl He says in disgust

No one is after all good enough For a frozen heart

Yet she deeply loved That hopeful nymph She thought she saw good

She faded into air He died soon enough A mere flower he is..

Today

And for eternity

Narcissus,the boy who loved his reflection.
