Body aflame - The Garden of Earthly Delights, Hieronymus Bosch

Hieronymus, or Jerome, Bosch, b. c.1450, d. August 1516
Um dos meus favoritos. Vamos experimentar em inglês.

The girl upon the girl
the monster within the monster

Her fruit is ripe
the flower ripping the flesh
the girl upon the girl and the man
They fill do they feel

Wings that fly don't fly
they set the body aflame
Things that walk don't walk
they glide they crawl
as writhing vines
overflow the veins
the wombs fiery with colour
in the earthly green
with terrible  beauty in the light 
of delightful hell
twisted flowers them all

And yet fear lies 
in trace and colour
each round line
and perfectly defined painted shape
are torture
frightful beauty it is

and other
