A rendezvous, in the ebony night

Nothing is hidden, illuminous sight

She sparkles in his shadow, his smile, a shine

In hopes she will come to him, this beauty, sublime

He beckons to her, she draws herself near

Yet she never quite stops, sailing by, in the clear

Of winter’s dark, she’s a tease in the sky

Moon longs for Venus, but she passes him by
