venus ravaged


tree-2venus-denuded

venus
poor venus
oh
what have they done

the seasons have taken
your youth
burned
and blistered
away

will you
like the moon
shed your old skin
and return

more sleek
more smooth
more beautiful

after the heat
after snow
when you know
for certain
that Springtime
has come back
again
