By Billy And Charlie

I am Venus, fifth planet above
The world, and am the light of Love.
I’m moist and cold, and in my hour
Men feel my great and awesome power.
Two houses are mine, in which I fare,
The Bull and Scales, and when I’m there
I live in joy and jollity,
And Mars can never frighten me.
In the cold, wet Fishes I’m glad to rise,
In the Virgin’s sign my power dies.
In just one year and then one day
Through the signs I gently play.
