The Poem by Dante Rossetti:
Of Adam's first wife, Lilith, it is told
(The witch he loved before the gift of Eve,)
That, ere the snake's, her sweet tongue could deceive,
And her enchanted hair was the first gold.
And still she sits, young while the earth is old,
And, subtly of herself contemplative,
Draws men to watch the bright web she can weave,
Till heart and body and life are in its hold.
The rose and poppy are her flowers; for where
Is he not found, O Lilith, whom shed scent
And soft-shed kisses and soft sleep shall snare?
Lo! as that youth's eyes burned at thine, so went
Thy spell through him, and left his straight neck bent
And round his heart one strangling golden hair. [Collected Poems, 161]
Welcome to my Art Gallery....
The Lady of Shalott by John William Waterhouse...
Notice towards the front of the boat is a crucifix, not many people see at first glance, this is a painting to be looked into, as are most of the pre Raphaelite pieces of art... always more than first glance!
