'Her golden tresses fell carelessly over a neck whiter than snow. As she moved--Cupid waxing sportive unseen--the nipples on her breast danced. From her gleaming waist shot the flames that set men's hearts on fire, while up her comely limbs the ivy of desire entwined itself. A veil of finest sendal paid due tribute to modesty, neither concealing nor revealing all.'
