Desc. : "My hair is like an infinite river in the plain where the flaming evening flows away ... My eyes in the shadow of my lashes are like deep lakes under dark branches ... My lips are the burning edges of a wound ... My tongue is encrusted with precious stones. It is red from mirroring my lips ... My arms reach out like two lily stems whereon my fingers cling like five petals ... My feet are two water-lily petals upon a pool; my limbs are two swollen water-lily buds ... My bosom is the moon and the moon's gleam on the water ... My navel is a round pearl on a bowl that has been turned upside down, and my belly Phobe's bright crescent in the forest ... I am a crimson blossom, full of sweet scents and honey. I am like the sea-hydra, soft, living, open at night. I am the damp cave, the ever-warm shelter, the haven where a man can rest on his journey to death." Pierre Louÿs (1870-1925) Aphrodite", Book One 1896.
