A Night On Mt. Olympus

As the gods silently slept
On imposing Mt. Olympus,
So surreptitiously I crept
And awakened goddess Venus.

She gave me a big red apple,
Then she asked me to have a bite,
And, by the gods, did I tremble
With a strange torrid delight.

With gentleness I pushed ajar
Her wide chamber’s rose-colored door,
I saw an ark full of nectar
And deep within me flowed ardor.

I drew aside the golden veil
And sipped the nectar in the ark,
All of a sudden I did feel
Love’s mysteriously sweet spark.

    Lovely poem. I would say,

    Cupid's arrows shoot too deep
    Its pain is pleasing, gives love beeps.
