That ardent look of desire undisguised


There is that look that a man can have in his eyes,
that ardent look of desire undisguised.
It is that look that would, if it could,
engulf your very being.
It is that look that says he is yours, all yours,
if only for that time being.

Now how must a woman requite that look in a man’s eyes,
that ardent look of desire undisguised?
I say that she would, if she could,
lay claim to his very being.
I say that she take what’s hers, all hers,
as it can last only for that time being.

    Touché! I have often wondered what thoughts come to a woman's mind at a moment like that! The poem has a romantic flavour and a completeness in the brevity of its statement. 10. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
