Venus and Cupid

DT504

This poem was inspired by a art piece called “Venus and Cupid” painted by Lorenzo Lotto.

Cupid the wager of love

Venus the interpreter of love

Alike in love

As they rest by each other

like mother and son

A top a soft blue blanket

drapes a deep blood red

and reef along a string holding them together

A celebration of holy matrimony

with Venus a vision of the bride

A women of a million faces

Alongside Lotto

their artist with a fascination of emblematic devices

shells upon Venus crown

roses petals at her lap

ivy in fidelity

myrtle wreath that sat upon the real brides head

Cupid augury of fertility and mischief

two supernatural beings

in their most natural form

  1. I like how:
    “Cupid the wager of love

    Venus the interpreter of love

    Alike in love”
    shows how they are connected, and when you refer to mother and son the bonds is more clearly solidified.
