Rembrandt’s Bathsheba

This Rembrandt of

Bathsheba at Her Bath

light drenches her body

let water cling

like eyes that lust upon her

 

Her beauty wrapped in time

when all the kings and men

went out to war

yet David stays

behind

 

Sun reaches out to touch

where others dare not

naked least the jewels

bind her to the day

sublime

 

He must decide

leave her be

or take her in his palace

the rest is

history
