Sonnet for Aphrodite

(Note: This is not a TRUE sonnet since it doesn't follow the iambic pentameter)

How fair are you Aphrodite, fair rose?
I rejoice in your presence great goddess
For your gifts provide, in this world, repose
They give man the greatest joy, true goodness

And through you we come to know great pleasure 
Through you we are graced with the purest love
As our lovers consume all our leisure 
Let your beauty consume us from above

Let our souls rise as you rose from the foam
Unique, renewed, and knowing grand purpose 
Let our hearts be for love like fertile loam 
For men and women you are an axis

All of humanity longs for your gifts
To you, I and they and she and he drifts
