Nye* - Poem by s./j. goldner

my lips are the berries—my eyes the leaves
on your mistletoe above the doorstep;
her lips are the ash from the fireplace
when they are pressed against yours.



*abbreviation for new year's eve

    This is a good poem that says to me that love is like a plant that is constantly growing to rise to one other's own heart. God bless and best regards-Mike Gale. (Report) Reply
