Her Scent In My Blanket


There I lay and I always tried!
Smooching the blanket and try to find
The sweet scent that I want to smell
When I found it I smiled and fell.

When she left I hugged the pillow
And the day turned into yellow.
I couldn't resist to kiss it
So, I did and smooched it a bit,
Then the smell that can make me leap!
I smelled it 'till I fell asleep.

There I lay and I always tried!
Smooching the blanket and try to find
The sweet scent that I want to smell
When I found it I smiled and fell.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I slept with my crush for the first time. When she left in the morning I was missing her immediately, the fragrance of her perfume that was still lingering and sticking at the pillows and blankets was all that I had left of her.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
