Her, just returning from her father’s brook,
Jove had beheld, with a desiring look:
And, Oh fair daughter of the flood, he said,
Worthy alone of Jove’s imperial bed,
Happy whoever shall those charms possess;
The king of Gods (nor is thy lover less)
Invites thee to yon cooler shades; to shun
The scorching rays of the meridian sun.
Nor shalt thou tempt the dangers of the grove
Alone, without a guide; thy guide is Jove.
No puny Pow’r, but he whose high command
Is unconfin’d, who rules the seas and land;
And tempers thunder in his awful hand,
Oh fly not: for she fled from his embrace
O’er Lerna’s pastures: he pursu’d the chace
Along the shades of the Lyrcaean plain;
At length the God, who never asks in vain,
Involv’d with vapours, imitating night,
Both Air, and Earth; and then suppress’d her flight,
And mingling force with love, enjoy’d the full delight.

(Ovid, Metamorphoses, Book I; trans. Sir Samuel Garth, John Dryden, et al.)
