The Seduction of Venus Dec 1

Poetry By: donkylemore
Classics



if you saw the sight of Venus disappear behind the moon last night , and see the brilliance of her reappearence on the other side like a diamond on a ring.
But why does it flirt just so close , never falling between the horns of the waning moon.

Occultation n of Venus Dec 1

Tonight at dusk, if you'd looked southwest across the fading light
You'd have seen a blushing Venus hide behind the moon.
And when the shroud of night descends ,
She merges shining like a diamond on a new brides finger.
On the moon's crescent - a sparkling gem.,


Over head Jupiter looks down chaperoning her occultation.
Now her voyage alone in the dark is over
And she breathes again of the celestial night ,
And the timeless journey of the planets continue
In their eternal orbit of the sun.

Having kissed the moon's disc
Once, in a heavenly promise ;
She floats on in heavenly silence
Into the twinkling traffic of the firmament,
Until she comes again in accordance with some wizards ossuary.

And I wait for that time when she lingers between those silver cusps
And wonder if she could sometime fall with abandon
Into the bosom of the moon .
And their planetary flirtation be complete
In the culmination of their final congress.

So look Southwest again tonight
And if you're blessed with a cloudless sky,
You may see another of their flirtations
But don't wait for the fall of Venus
Between those seductive cusps.

And maybe the Yin and Yang
Will copulate before your very eyes ;
I doubt it ;- but keep looking
But if you figure out , why
This seduction why you wont see ;
Could you take - take the time to tell me why.
