my first kiss


I still remember my first kiss though fourty years have passed
The beauty of the moment and the thrill will ever last
Etched into my memory as words into a stone

    I always say there are no words to explain my first kiss and I am still with my first and only love. And in your words, I went back to that moment, my very first kiss and though we all have different experiences, you worded this in a way that we can all relate too. And at the same time, this is a look into a special moment in your life. I think my favorite lines were Clearer than the clearest night that I have ever known and
    When finally it ended I knew this had been a kiss. Exactly how I felt. (Report) Reply

    Dr. Lackman said it so well, I will not tread on his sweet memory, not yet dead. Instead, I will offer
    it up to others as kiss well done, not one made just for fun. Robert Burns, Portland, Or. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
