Year of The Cavalier

First new moon touches perigee now as Venus goes direct
The time to draw one's bow and aim is over 
No further need to reflect ...

Unless your sign be equine
Then hold your horses still
Though they're champing at the bit
Close the stable door
Or bolt beyond, those broncos will

Wooden Trojan stallion stand silently in wait
Flames of war burning all around 
Can consume at any rate

Reign in thy steed noble knight
From high and haughty saddle
Must thee occasionally dismount
Lead ponies down to water's edge
Let them drink of their own account

Against symbolic windmills, like Don Quijote bravely tilt
Head cavalry through its last heroic hurdle
Upon mustang thy blood spilt!
