Venus

C#m: With beauty was she blessed

Emaj: Yet in stride left a curse—

 

(Simile)

Day by day she pined,

Pined away in her verse

 

But would Venus see,

The world afar alight

She could see it ere

In the blistering, chill night

 

Pensive in her gait

Hardly a spirit near

 

Aimlessly wandering yet—

Found source of human fear

 

But would Venus see,

The world afar alight

She could see it ere

In the blistering, chill night

 

Men of many had once

Sought her gaze

 

But her mind could only see

The end of human days

 

But would Venus see,

The world afar alight

She could see it ere

In the blistering, chill night

 

Loneliness reigns,

Yet still she would find

 

Her soul now of darkness

The music of the mind

 

Her brilliance hindered,

Insufferably rare—

 

Collapsed and weeped,

For she could not share

 

But would Venus see,

The world afar alight

She could see it ere

In the blistering, chill night
