Invocations, Pleas, Poems, Prayers, Hymns and Other Homage to HER:


the Goddess named Venus



She spake, and as She turned away, Her roseate

neck flashed bright.

From Her head Her ambrosial tresses breathed

celestial fragrance;

down to Her feet fell Her raiment, and in Her step

She revealed a very Goddess.



Virgil. Aeneid.
