Leand(e)r - Downtown Missoula, Montana

"...Vail'd to the ground, veiling her eyelids close; 
And modestly they opened as she rose. 
Thence flew Love's arrow with the golden head; 
And thus Leander was enamoured. 
Stone-still he stood, and evermore he gazed, 
Till with the fire that from his count'nance blazed 
Relenting Hero's gentle heart was strook: 
Such force and virtue hath an amorous look. ..." 

- from Hero And Leander by Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593)
