Ode to Venus

By Aeon Woodford

The Lovely Venus, Bringer of Peace,  
We bring Thee myrtle, roses, doves, and swans. 
Thine acquiescent realm provides surcease
Of stress when we upon thy chaise ensconce. 

Languid harp and flute apropos thy beauty
Grace as well Thy haven adorned in opulence. 
Enshrouded like the planet named for thee,
Can this be real or trick upon our sense?

Th’enshrouded planet bidd’st us advance
And wreck beneath its thick miasmic mist.
Didst thou in dalliance with Mars so entrance
And cause him ruin in thy famous tryst?

No doubt he sought to pierce thy mystery.
No doubt thou didst enfold him utterly. 


Poems and stories (2000w or less) can be submitted at the drop boxes on LEA 4, or by emailing them to caledoniaskytower at g mail (dot) com. And YES, feel free to illustrate your submissions!
