Apollo And Daphne (Eight By Four) - Poem by Dorian Petersen Potter

Apollo's first love
a beautiful
maiden that when
Apollo saw her
in the woods fell
in love with-but
Daphne fled from
him frightened

Apollo was in
such hot pursuit
that when she felt
his breath she scream'd
at her father
the god Peneus
who chang'd her
into a tree.
