I tied a swing on the Venus,
To go up to the east and the west,
Up to the east and then to the earth,
Up to the west and then to the earth.
While going up I saw
Many a shining rounded bobs,
To and fro they moved with light,
As the baubles on X'mas tree.
So many skyscrapers far and wide
Lit up with many starry lights.
Little gangs of nymphs and elves,
Angels, harpies, igigi and fairies,
All are busy with their work,
Here and there with serious faces.
Then on the earth I pushed my toes,
Again to see a little more,
At the fringe of the rounded sky,
Some are loosening silky red,
Mixed with orange, purple and yellow
To make us happy down on the earth.
Some are blowing clouds to the earth,
With long bubble wands in their mouth,
Clouds are flying silver white,
Many are gloomy, smooth and black.
Some are playing drums and cymbals
Others are playing flutes and harps,
Why this music, I wondered!
Thunder, wind and rain answered.
There is an entrance at the west,
And an exit at the east,
Souls rushed from the earth I saw,
Tiny souls from exit down.
Really it's fantastic
To get a view from so far up.
Venus, now I understood,
Why you stand there so far up! !
