Those under Saturn

Those under Saturn
stand in the shadows,
while the dance stamps.

Watchers are lovers,
but love chooses others
wherever it tramps.

One turn of the tide,
one shift of the stars,
the raven decamps,

then I'll walk you home,
guided by Venus,
the lighter of lamps.

From The Io Passion
