The poem is inspired from the Greek mythology about the story of love between Greek God of poetry and music, Apollo and the Spartan prince, Hyacinth. Hyacinth was the male lover of Apollo and he choses Apollo over the Greek God of West winds, Zephyrus who in wrath killed Hyacinth. Apollo was unable to save him despite his medicinal skills as he can't reverse the fate. From Hyacinth's spilled blood, Apollo created a flower with the same name with deep blue hue and curled petals. The flower attributes the symbol of decay and renewal.
