A Midnight Kiss

Through the garden in the moonlight
along the sweeping path we walked,
down the stone slab steps we wandered
where we sat for hours and talked
on the seat beneath the Willow
which dipped into the river low.
As the warm air heavy scented,
making all my senses glow
you gave me a midnight kiss,
a kiss that stole my heart away.
A kiss that I shall always cherish,
a kiss that made me want to stay.

Beneath the stars I still sit gazing
at the iridescent moon,
as the glistening water shimmers:
will you be returning soon?
As the swans down settle quietly
in the rushes where they sleep
and the fish still keep me wakeful,
listening for their joyful leap
I'm waiting for a midnight kiss,
a kiss to steal your heart away.
A kiss I hope you still remember
a kiss I hope will make you stay.

Kathleen..You always remember a kiss.
No matter what occasion. Tender, loving,passionate.
Like the first kiss a youth.

No one says an old kiss.. wonder why?

This conveys all the hope, and longing that lies in absence. How fond can the heart grow in such conditions? A truly captivating piece, that will no doubt speak to many the way it has to me. Bravo!

Excerlent poem, takes an old man's memories back a few years, and lights a fire in an old furnace.

Thanks Frank, glad to know it relights your romantic fires. It was an experiment with words really, so I was surprised that it turned out so romantic - I'm not that way inclined usually.
