Three Kisses (Novelinee) - Poem by Gert Strydom
(after Elizabeth Barrett Browning, for my wife Daleen)
Your first soft kiss was on my fingertips,
as to sanctify the words that I write
leaving the two red impressions of your lips
and for many more I had an appetite
while the second kiss only brushed light,
as a butterfly fluttered away
in its fragile kind of lingering flight;
full on my lips the third kiss did not stray
and you became my true love on that day.
