This is a Greek mythology: there is a very handsome and conceited young man named Narcissus, he is extremely handsome and unparalleled. He often came to the river to stare at his own shadow in the water, fell into love and longing, and spent the day and night sleepless, staring at the shadow in the water. He thinks that there is no one in the world more beautiful than a person in the water, so he stays by the water day and night, staring at his face in the water.
He admired the face in the water, and stayed at the water's edge day and night, staring at the face in the water continuously. He begged the shadow in the water to come up, but she stayed in the water, staring at him affectionately. He stretched out his hand to the shadow in the water, trying to hold her hand, but the water surface rippled, and the shadow disappeared. He was waiting foolishly until the water surface was calm, her face reappeared in the water.
Due to lack of sleep and food, Narciss was weakened day by day, and were about to die. One day, he jumped, sank into the water to be united with his lover, and drowned to death.
When the gods on the Olympic Mountain learned the story of Narcis's martyrdom, they all felt sorry for this "infatuated man." So they turned him into a daffodil, growing by the water, staring at its shadow in the water forever.
春回大地, 萬物復甦. 又是春暖花香的季節了！
