In their ordinary swoon,
The speaker imagines a message of love sent to the lovers from Venus, the Roman goddess of love and beauty. Yet this message is "grave"; it's serious and maybe even a little morbid. Love in this poem is not sparkling all the time because there's always the threat of death. Also, it's noteworthy that the speaker uses the word "ordinary" to describe the embrace of the lovers. Their love is nothing special; it's the love that every human experiences.

[…] but from this night
The speaker declares that he'll remember everything that has happened on this night. He won't forget a single second of this love-filled experience.

Let the winds of dawn that blow
The speaker whispers a prayer-like wish for his sleeping beloved. He wants the world to treat him well, and he wants his lover to find what he needs on earth, not in the heavens.
