The second addition to the planetary poetry is here for your studious consumption. These posts are getting more and more educational by the day. Venus has been a real gem to marvel at.
Second from the sun, yet the brightest and hottest, Venus is our subject for the day. In a mythological context, Venus it is linked with Venus (The God) and Aphrodite. These two deities are linked with beauty, love, passion and eternal youth. I had no idea that Venus is the only planet to spin on its axis in the opposite direction to the other planets, just doing her own thing, and copper is her substance. Lets see what kind of sonnet I can whip up for her majesty, iambic pentameter was attempted for this serving.
Your bosom bursts with passions potent flare,
Rousing up the verve inside my veins.
You hold my inhibitions well impaired,
Your beauty helps to spark the lovers flames.
No rivers run can quench your given power,
Aphrodite, Venus, you are queen.
I dream to drink your touch and never cower
To love, I steep my longing in your stream.
What hope is there for mortal men as me?
What hope to paint my worthiness as true?
That crown of copper opulence I see,
Reminds me that Olympus harbors you.
You are the brightest smile along in this trail.
You are the burning heart where love prevails.
