A description of the experience
Ovid Metamorphoses - The Song of the Muses
Venus beheld him from her flowery hill:
When strait the dame her little Cupid pressed
With secret rapture to her snowy breast,
And in these words the fluttering boy addressed.
‘O thou, my arms, my glory, and my power,
My son, whom men, and deathless Gods adore;
Bend thy sure bow, whose arrows never missed,
No longer let Hell's king thy sway resist;
Take him, while straggling from his dark abodes
He coasts the kingdoms of superior Gods.
