Aphrodite passing


Unsteady as you go today

As my love in Naples Bay

My ship throws these lines away

On this very journey:

As today you walk the stairs
I’m breathless but not out of breath
You step so free without a care
And I follow step by step
I’m gleeful now and you laugh
And share this light a certain time
As our life goes dancing past
In rhythm and in rhyme
Yes, this is undying still
Golden moments are not blue
Drinking dancing cups are filled
Only this may honour you.
(C)2017 by W.G. Milne

From seeing Aphrodite on an ancient vase,

and seeing her arise in a woman in my life.
