Beautiful quote-poem

He gazed and gazed and gazed and gazed,
Amazed, amazed, amazed, amazed.

   - Robert Browning, Rhyme for a Child Viewing a Naked Venus in a Painting “The Judgement of Paris”

 

The painting by Peter Paul Rubens.

 

I'm not sure Browning was thinking about this particular painting - there are many others. Many painters were inspired by the myth, but I like this one best.
