** LOVE UNDER THE INCA SKY!


LOVE UNDER THE INCA
SKY!
When I planted a stolen kiss on your lips,
Those tender lips so innocent and pure!
Between the tall bushes and slender trees,
Gaining strength to endure!
With your black hair’s cascading flow,
And your beauty all shimmering bright;
When you anxiously looked back to see,
And hurried back with steps so light!

And at night under the starry sky,
I think of you as my guiding star!
With your laughter like the mountain stream,
You stay so near, and yet you are so far!
I go to bed with your happy thoughts,
And think of the goodness of your heart;
Of kissing you behind those bushes once
more,
When our lips will get locked, - never to
part!

(In this poem an Inca youth passionately yearns
for his mate! The Incas remained close to nature
& revered the sun, the moon & the stars! Those
interested, kindly read 'Machu Picchu-The Lost City
Of The Incas'- on page 7, you will not regret it!)

    In this poem we find extended metaphors like: ''a stolen kiss on your lips, /Those tender lips so innocent and pure'', also epithets like: ''tall bushes''''slender trees'', also submerged metaphors like: ''With your black hair’s cascading flow'', also similes like: ''I think of you as my guiding star'', conceptual metaphor like: ''I go to bed with your happy thoughts'' and
    comparisons like: ''With your laughter like the mountain stream''. Their role is to compare his loved woman to nature and to enhance her moral and physical qualities.10++ (Report) Reply

    very romantic and sensuous, kind of youthful feel to it, but then love knows no age
    Cupid can strike at any stage...10
