Aphrodite of Knidos

Her words’ perfume inflame the air

Taffeta’s vanished from her skin

Watch Knidos Aphrodite comes again

Sinking the world into delicious sin.

 

Carnal pleasures burning gods and mortals

The minds engulfed into abiding rattles

While Plato’s watching horrified

Intriguing love affairs ending in battles.

 

Indifference mirrored in your eyes

While watching Aphrodite’s waving body

My darling, you and Plato are the only ones

Who see her charms as nothing else but gaudy.
