I am looking for an old poem called " A Little Boys Kiss" What I can remember of it goes " A little boys kiss is a transient thing, a rose in full bloom, a moth on the wing"

    Laura I can't believe you found it! Thank you SO much. I had saved this poem in my sons baby book so many years ago. The book was lost as he grew and moved several times. Now I have great grandsons and will pass this poem along to them. I am so happy to see it again!

    A LITTLE BOY'S KISS
    by L. Dutter

    A little boy's kiss ia a transient thing,
    A rose in full bloom; a moth on the wing.

    One kiss is spontaneous, flavored with milk
    Another is sleep-covered, texture of silk.

    A kiss born of duty, delivered in haste,
    His life's so exciting, there's no time to waste.

    Assorted endearments; to bribe or atone,
    His thanks for some toy he's been begging to own.

    I treasure them all, for I'm certain of this
    Too soon he will feel that it's " sissy" to kiss!
