Best Poem of Mikhail Alekseevich Kuzmin

My Groom And Friend

My groom and friend came from afar.
I kiss your feet!
He drew his circle around me.
I kiss your hands!

I kiss your wings!

The yoke of love is light and sweet.
I kiss your shoulders!
Your brand is burned upon my heart.
I kiss your lips!
