Ode to Venus With A Million Lips


Love high in to the mighty sky
Love tall to where feathered creatures fly
Love deep inhale the residue of man
Love to your fullest as you conquer your terrain

Love like a nymph from the depths of soil
Bathe your soul with the miracle of earth’s toil
Play with the creatures that feed on your bark
Never laze around in the shadow of the sodden dark

Bequeath on all the fruits of love
Gaze far in to the night at the heavens above
Fill your gargantuan soul with the miracle of light
Make love to the wind rock to her flight

Exhale from your salacious lips the elixir of breath
As creatures prosper beyond the guillotine of death
Raise the bounty of life with your herculean might
As your churn rings of sugars from the energy of light

Sprinkle shade with the canopy of your leaves
Sprinkle sunbeams through your chasms and sieves
For all creatures live in fusions of shadow and light
As white as day yet as black as night

So love like Venus with a green frock on
Rustle your body as you love deep and long
For the gods were kind to your mystical soul
As millions of lips were woven on your leafy whole

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
