Moroccan Nights

Beautiful Moroccan Bathroom.
What a wonderful place to bathe in. I love the Moroccan style, so beautiful and Bohemian. Lying in the water under the light of the lantern, relaxing and dreaming!

A Little Witchery

Circe by Beatrice Offor 1864- 1920

Dusk-haired and gold-robed o'er the golden wine
She stoops, wherein, distilled of death and shame,
Sink the black drops; while, lit with fragrant flame,
Round her spread board the golden sunflowers shine.
Doth Helios here with Hecate combine
O Circe, thou their votaress?) to proclaim
For these thy guests all rapture in Love's name,
Till pitiless Night give Day the countersign?

Lords of their hour, they come. And by her knee
Those cowering beasts, their equal heretofore,
Wait; who with them in new equality
To-night shall echo back the unchanging roar
Which sounds forever from the tide-strown shore
Where the dishevelled seaweed hates the sea.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
The Wine of Circe

Year written: 1869
