Elena Plotkin


A Kiss


A kiss on the forehead
or one on the cheek
A kiss from your mother
while you are asleep.
A kiss of pure innocence.


A kiss on the cheek
Or a kiss on the lips
A kiss from a playmate
Who sits in the same row.
A kiss of pure innocence.


A kiss on the lips
Or a kiss on the neck
A kiss from someone
you're happy you met.
A kiss of lost innocence.

    And what about Him who doth kiss so oft
    On your cheeks in the gentle breeze
    On your furrowed brow in sunlight warm and soft
    And at night with moonbeams of ease....?

    Very good poem and I welcome you to my page too. Wishing you a very happy, prosperous and poetic new year from India. (Report) Reply

    i'm not sure i agree with Khairul, below. after innocence is lost comes a lot of work and sometimes heartbreak!
    i laughed at the last stanza...out loud. i have added this, or will, to MyPoemlist. well done, good and faithful poet.

    try, if you will, my poem 88 Kiss With A Twist...... it is number 88 today anyway. i had to search for it as i could not remember the exact title.
    i usually find something i don't like about a poem, but i didn't find anything here. thanks for sharing. bri (Report) Reply
