Description A famous 4th-century poem describing the poet's vision of a river goddess has been written out in its entirety. "I was enamored of her beauty; my heart was shaking and would not rest....The Lady of the River raised the silken flutterings of her light mantle, covered her long sleeves, and for a moment pused. Then, swift as a hawk in flight, again a Goddess, she sped upon her way...."
