When Venus Danced with the Moon


When Venus danced with the moon in the ev’n

The stars in the dark sang along

And sun, pale with jealousy, watched from her perch

Transfixed by their wondrous song.

 

The goddess of love offered blissful embrace

To her lover, the ruler of night

And earth stood serene, a great joy to be seen

Gently bathed by the moon’s silver light.

 

The rivers grew silent, the mountains were hushed

And valleys gazed up toward the sky

All seas came becalmed and gently they watched

Adoration unleashed from on high.

 

Ethereal splendor broke over them all,

Aurora woke ever too soon

And magical grace caressed all living things

The night Venus danced with the moon.
