Lot's Wife: A Single Glance

Lot's Wife
by British artist John Bulloch Souter, 1890 - 1972

"Who will mourn for this woman?
Does she seem any the less for her losses?
Only my heart will never forget
She who gave her life for a single glance."

from the poem "Lot's Wife"
by Anna Akhmatova, 1889 - 1966
