Treasure Island

To Leap Into Bed


Don't leap into bed on first date.
It betrays your opportunism.
Post-marriage union is guiltless.
First night is the wedding's prerogative.

Pre-marriage sexual gratifications
Would stunt the emotional growth
Towards commitment and concern.
With chances of cracks being maximum.

Courtship is meant for the lovers
To know each other and find out
How best they adjust each other.
Don't use before the thing is owned.

    You are right you know, that act should be something sacred. Once given up on d 'first date', opens the door to 'cracks'. I like the last line too, it portrays the essence of the whole poem. Good write. (Report) Reply

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
