But still
they paused at her doors, the nymph with lovely braids,
Circe – and deep inside they heard her singing, lifting
her spellbinding voice as she glided back and forth
at her great immortal loom, her enchanting web
a shimmering glory only goddesses can weave.

– Homer

The Odyssey, Book 10, lines 240-245. The alluring powers of the sexual temptress Cicle are described in this passage, as Odysseus’ men approach her door.
