Salome ~Oscar Wilde

Salome's Dancing-Lesson


She that begs a little boon
(Heel and toe! Heel and toe!)
Little gets- and nothing, soon.
(No, no, no! No, no, no!)
She that calls for costly things
Priceless finds her offerings-
What's impossible to kings?
(Heel and toe! Heel and toe!)

Kings are shaped as other men.
(Step and turn! Step and turn!)
Ask what none may ask again.
(Will you learn? Will you learn?)
Lovers whine, and kisses pall,
Jewels tarnish, kingdoms fall-
Death's the rarest prize of all!
(Step and turn! Step and turn!)

Veils are woven to be dropped.
(One, two, three! One, two, three!)
Aging eyes are slowest stopped.
(Quietly! Quietly!)
She whose body's young and cool
Has no need of dancing-school-
Scratch a king and find a fool!
(One, two, three! One, two, three!)

You have a fantastic way of displaying/setting up for photos. Beautiful image & very interesting passage.

C'est une très belle image, Marisa. La composition est très bonne. Les hautes lumières ne sont pas surexposées et les ombres sont encore très lisibles. Bref, du grand art... C'est pour moi une très grande photo dans son style.
