My name is Casey Ortiz and I was delighted to present and show you guys the myth Ceyx and Alcyone. This myth is a great lovers myth because it shows love and passion. They cared very much about each other even though Alcyone's true love dies. It is a very sad but wonderful myth and I hope you guys liked it too.
