Ode to Venus
I see you standing my faithful watchman.
My queen of the night.
Every night I expect you.
You remain loyal to me.
I see you shining in the already pale blue firmament.
You welcome the night when the sun fails.
Lonely and glistening, you look down on me.
I feel the loneliness of the night approaching,
but you enlighten my mind.
If the sun ever disappears, you too will disappear,
my dearest light.
Let the night come, then I can keep dreaming!
Ode to my dearest wife.
