  AND THOUGH THEY WERE AT REST
  THE TENDER DAWN FRINGING THE FEATHERS
  QUIVERED NAUGHTILY ALL THE TIME
  THE REST OF THE BODY WAS SO SMOOTH AND BEAUTIFUL
  THAT VENUS COULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ASHAMED
  TO ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AS HER SON ... "

      REPRESENTED BY OUR UPPER LIP TOWARD OUR INTENDED
  VICTIMS or TARGETS OF OUR LOVE WITH HOPES TO INDUCE
  " LOVE SICKNESS " TOWARD US  as in VALENTINE DAY
  A PIERCED HEART BY AN ARROW OF CUPID IS ITS MARK
