The Transit of Venus

On the morning of the D-day when you’ll wed,
as milkmen start their rounds while you’re a-bed,
that’s just about when Venus, the goddess of love,
will – if you, too, rise early to look above
the lanes of Lancs. – be making her merry way
across the sun. This once-in-a-lifetime day
will be as warm and lovely as home-baked bread,
on the morning of the D-day when you’ll wed.

for John & Wendy, 6th June 2012
