FORSAKEN. Anemone was a nymph, beloved by Zephyr. Flora, jealous of her, banished her from the court, and transformed her into a flower, that blows before the return of spring. Zephyr has abandoned this unhappy beauty to the rude caresses of Boreas, who, unable to fain her love, harshly shakes her, half opens her blossoms, and causes her immediately to fade.
