Venus in the Woods
We are the lovers in the wood,
Searching out the secret places
Venus is among us.
Alive, in the speckled sunlight & shady groves
Moving through the trees.
Is there ever really a place
To truly be alone?
We'll let these cool brooks,
And mid-day siestas fill up with our passions.
And hope Venus will lead us
To sacred groves
Where love and time may last forever.
