3. Shifting Surfaces of Art and Nature: Flowers, Deception, and the Ποικίλον
δίπλακα πορφυρέην, ἐν δὲ θρόνα ποικίλ’ ἔπασσε.
Double and crimson, and she was scattering elaborate flowers on it.
ποικίλον, ἔνθα τέ οἱ θελκτήρια πάντα τέτυκτο·
ἔνθ’ ἔνι μὲν φιλότης, ἐν δ’ ἵμερος, ἐν δ’ ὀαριστὺς
πάρφασις, ἥ τ’ ἔκλεψε νόον πύκα περ φρονεόντων.
Elaborate girdle, where all beguilements had been fashioned;
On it there was love, desire, and lovers’ words,
Misleading speech, which steals the mind of even the wisest. 
… and instructs Hera in its use:
ποικίλον, ᾧ ἔνι πάντα τετεύχεται· οὐδὲ σέ φημι
ἄπρηκτον γε νέεσθαι, ὅ τι φρεσὶ σῇσι μενοινᾷς.”
In which all things have been fashioned; I say that you
Will not return without achieving that which you desire in your heart.”
