Elecampane, what is my name?

Nepenthê, a care-dispelling drug, which Polydamna, wife of Thonis king of Egypt gave to Helen in the Odyssey. A drink containing this drug changed grief to mirth, melancholy to joyfulness, and hatred to love. The water of Ardenne had the opposite effects.

Nepenthê is a drink of sovereign grace,
Devised by the gods for to assuage
Heart’s grief, and bitter gall away to chase

Instead thereof sweet peace and quietage
It doth establish in the troubled mind
And such as drink, eternal happiness do find.
