Echo could not forget the face of her lost
love. She set out to try and find him
again and came across Narcissus kneeling by the pool. Since she could not approach him and tell him
of her love, she remained in hiding to see what he would do. Narcissus and Echo remained thus for many
days. Finally, Narcissus became so weak
from hunger and thirst that he feel over into the pool. He did not have the strength to pull himself
out of the water, and he drowned.
terrible grief, Echo fled the woods and hid herself in a cave. There she
remained without eating or drinking until she too withered away and died.
that was not the end for either Narcissus or Echo. Near the pool where he died, a beautiful flower
grew, the Narcissus. And Echo’s voice
lives on in the caves and hills. To hear
her, one need just call out.
