Danaïd Meets Danaë

Danaïd Meets Danaë

After Rodin’s Danaïd and Klimt’s Danaë (after the lady to whom Zeus came as a golden rain). Oils on 40 x 50 cm stretched canvas (web store). 

Danaïd meets Danaë. Golden showers ensue.
But the barrel has no bottom—so the girls continue.
No more Zeus comes barging through,
no more father’s tower trapping.
But on and on the golden flow comes wrapping, lapping, slapping.
