Elena Sandu


Snow drops


From today, March 1st,
This sunny day,
To 8th of March
Most women of my land
Will smile and pray
Inside their hearts.
For One they Love!
The much loved man
Will hear woman's call.
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!
So, now get ready
His time to pray:
She has to kiss him
Nine hundred ninety nine
Times again!
Let's hope she'll hear,
Get it done.
Or...
Spring, will never ever
come...

So, may I say my my pray:
For man to give
their loved ones what they wish
And woman give man
a bit more then a much too little
Tiny kiss?

    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! (Report) Reply

    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. (Report) Reply

    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! '

    ‘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 (Report) Reply
