“Hide-and-seek they then played amidst the floating flowers. Rama sank down until his face only was seen, and Sita, who searched for him, knew not whether she saw the face of Rama or a blue lotus bloom on the surface of the pond.”
From “The Ramayana,” ancient Indian epic poem. Illustrated by Warwick Goble, 1915.
