First Caress Poem by Darlene Walsh

First Caress

Rating: 4.2


In purity, from my heart and soul I quest
After long thoughts, to myself confess
From deep in my being, love shall I assess
With my whole self to him shall I express
Shall two be one till one of us rest

His love, mind heart body and soul, to access
And all that is me for him to possess
Ceremony and dance, pure white wedding dress
Then before him I stand there and undress
Wearing what I was born with and no less

Clad with no more than God has blessed
As he moves, our proximity closely compress
He with gentle movement and I feel his caress
And I, till now my chary love, no more suppress
That is life, my very soul and heart, at its best

Your 'First Caress' is first class! While I was reading the poem, it caressed me all the way. The note is also beautiful. A nice dream, and yes, a dream can come true, and so often it does! The poem, 'written upon believing' that the poet was 'in love for the first time', is a poetic expression of a flower unfolding itself to a butterfly. The poem is a dream of a sweet sixteen lass, of her teen age muse, whose first caress she contemplates. Beautifully done!

It's a beauty, a teen aged beauty and I remember my days when I was 21 and she was 16. Now I am 70 and she is 65. Life was beautiful and it is still beautiful, like this beautiful poem................10

I am trying to imagine how you would be dressed if you were wearing LESS than your birthday suit. Hmm? Chary love? ? Does that have anything to do with the teen cherry, with which God blessed you? ? I've always felt bad that I never got one. One of my own OR anyone else's! ! A nice write, of course, though it was a challenge to keep up with you. And now you have found 'true love' and have diapers to change! :) Bri Nice set of rhymes.
