Peter Paul Rubens

(via iwanderedinadesertplace)

" a whirlwind warrior
bound on a twister
she tears the king’s robe
dust-dry south wind
sweeps at her bidding
leaves in its trail
breast-beating despair "
" Don’t worry, dearest of all women to me,
it is not so terrible to descend
along the wending way. "
