"Our oneness is the wrestlers'..."

Our oneness is the wrestlers’, fierce and close,
Thrusting and thrust;
One life in dual effort for one prize,—
We fight, and must;
For soul with soul does battle evermore
Till love be trust.

From "Wrestling" by Louisa S. Bevington.

Hercules and Antaeus, School of Mantegna, c.1497

Louisa Bevington was an interesting woman. Read about her here.
