Brilliant beacon Venus glowing bright,
as the shiny gold coin she is.
Wedded perfectly to the sun,
never straying from his side,
and together they waltz
across the April night sky.
With ever-adoring eyes
gazing down on earth,
who, like some blue-green cat’s eye,
returns her stare.
More bright than the brightest star,
casting her mesmerizing light for all to see,
like some astroid-showering soul off to Heaven.
A wandering star to many she seems.
Those knowing her best will attest
her enigmatic family ties.
And helpless am I,
where in her midst I stray.
For in her shadow
my heart hangs deep.
Dangling there for eternity.
