Kipling (excerpt #1)

The Birth of Venus by Adolphe William Bouguereau

For Truth is a naked lady,
And if by accident she is drawn up;
From the bottom of the sea.
It behoves a gentleman,
Either to give her a print petticoat,
Or to turn his face to the wall,
And vow he did not see.

Aphrodite by Konstantin Makovski Geburt
