Cheeky - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

She was my favourite cousin,
barely ten,
and sleeping over.
I could not rest that night
and paced the hallway.
The door was there
so sudden,
like a welcome apparition.
And well-oiled hinges
let me have a peek
at little Gina's
moonlit other cheek.

    Some of the best verse can be found in capturing the simplest of observations! (Report)Reply
