Varnish Cache and Page Load Time

I have a two websites on a server running behind varnish.  One of the
websites is a Wordpress blog (with php, mysql etc..).  The other is a
simple html (without php or mysql) website.  Using Firefox's Yslow
add-in to check page load times, I have found that the simple html page
is served in 0.5 seconds, whereas it takes 1.4-1.7 seconds to load the
Wordpress site.  \


With the varnish cache working, shouldn't the time to load both sites be
approximately the same?  Or am I missing something?  Any thoughts or
ideas about how I could decrease the page load time of the Wordpress


Thanks for your help,
