Winged Amor Painted Blind And Suckled By Aphrodite - Poem by Peter Russell

Not milk, but bitter tears, my barbarous child, thou'lt suck!
For being God of Love so art above the intellect
With blinded eyes thou'lt go
So gentle thou shouldst ne'er behold
Civilisation and its woe
But know
Voluptuousness
That's greater and more old.
