When I have seen by Time's fell hand defacedThe rich proud cost of outworn buried age;When sometime lofty towers I see down-razed,And brass eternal slave to mortal rage; When I have seen the hungry ocean gainAdvantage on the kingdom of the shore,And the...

Lemek et ses 2 femmes Ada et Tsilla, ils sont dans le chapitre 4 de la Genèse; puis il y a un second Lemek qui est le père de Noé. Against my love shall be as I am now, With time’s injurious hand crushed and o'erworn; When hours have drained his blood...

Salvador Dali, Narcisse (1937) Sin of self-love possesseth all mine eyeAnd all my soul, and all my every part;And for this sin there is no remedy,It is so grounded inward in my heart. Methinks no face so gracious is as mine,No shape so true, no truth...

Is it thy will, thy image should keep openmy heavy eyelids to the weary night?Dost thou desire my slumbers should be broken,while shadows like to thee do mock my sight? Is it thy spirit that thou send'st from theeSo far from home into my deeds to pry,To...

Piranèse, Giovanni Battista (1720 - 1778) les prisons That god forbid, that made me first your slave,I should in thought control your times of pleasure,Or at your hand the account of hours to crave,Being your vassal, bound to stay your leisure! O! Let...

Being your slave what should I do but tendUpon the hours, and times of your desire?I have no precious time at all to spend;Nor services to do, till you require. Nor dare I chide the world without end hour,Whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you,Nor...

Sweet love, renew thy force; be it not saidThy edge should blunter be than appetite,Which but to-day by feeding is allayed,To-morrow sharpened in his former might: So, love, be thou, although to-day thou fillThy hungry eyes, even till they wink with fulness,To-morrow...
