Noodling...

Small children like bedtime stories, but once they hit kindergarten they get tired of the same old fairy tales. So my son is perstering me for new ones. D’Aulaire’s beautiful Book of Greek Myths was a natural, but we’ve pretty much exhausted the suitable stories (my wife doesn’t want him to hear about Oedipus yet:-)

So now I’m ransacking Ovid…and the story of Adonis in Book X got me thinking about an image…which led to some Latin…and a verse I’ve been tinkering with in my spare moments:

Hic lucus tristes anemonas creber obumbrat
   Quas dea continuis fletibus una beat.

Not sure…could this lead to anything?

Qui sciet quae quoque sint modo dicenda, nisi tamen in procinctu paratamque ad omnis casus habuerit eloquentiam, velut clausis thesauris incubabit.
