    A very sweet tradition poetically described. But I wonder, in a village full of courting men and women, does it happen when the fields are denuded, fist fights breakout for the lvery ast snow drop? 10+

    Snow drops or cold climes of Snow flakes.. they always come in such greetings that tell me just Hold on I am just nature and you are Part of Nature! ! .. Don't ever fear looking at me Nature, be brave and stay! !

    Sweet flowers carry sweetness and beauty. Spring comes and goes far giving us memory. Inside hearts love remains. Snow drops are special in perception. Very nice and vivid imagery is drawn here is interesting.10

    'There he is!
    As in her secret thoughts
    At her own door:
    Holding a bunch of
    gentle little snow drops.
    She'll have those sweet flowers
    Then he will be paid instead
    Only one warm but sweetest kiss!
    Yet! For the spring to come,
    He needs
    A thousand! '

    loved the progression of this, to the first kiss we add a score, then almost a thousand more, so sweet so gentle the snowdrops call :)

    Oh, this is so lovely, Elena my smiling friend! For the first time I am hearing of this tradtion or folk tale! Is it the myth behind the arrival of spring? Or is it just a figment of your imagination, I wonder! But it is a delightful fancy!
    I love the barter deal..... A boquet of flowers for a lovely kiss! Enjoyed!

    Delightful! I wish spring could hear your words, I believe she would pounce upon us... like a playful child come to their parents bedroom at morning's first light....spreading flowers and kisses of her own, enough to satisfy the heart's desire.

    The last stanza is so wonderful!
    She'll have those sweet flowers
    Then he will be paid instead
    Only one warm but sweetest kiss!
    Yet! For the spring to come,
    He needs
    A thousand! '
    Wow! A heart refreshing poem!

    ‘women give men a bit more then a much /too little- tiny kiss! ! ’ women are emotionally ahead for always some extra …caught metaphorically...befitting …nice diction

    Therefore as for that
    for you the only

    Perhaps,
    just my praying:
    In the same way
    and the family to the woman gives that person
    more from the person,
    from whom it should give,
    desires as for the greatly excessively small small butterfly
    for the family which kisses to........... iip
