Was It A Kiss (poem)

Updated on August 19, 2012

Was it a kiss now calling me return

Those fields of summer now so long ago

Where flowers bloomed amid a lover’s glow

Another sip of Joy our sole concern


A simple kiss if simple kiss can be

That calls us to those nights beneath our moon

So endless were those paths to lovers’ tune

Another dream to form a memory


A symbol this that everything is right

The winds of trials and strain have gone at last

Those hidden scars bear marks to lovers’ past

Another dawn now promises delight


Was it a kiss this gift that came from you

Or just some silly thing that lovers do

      What is behind the kiss, or is it simply a kiss, bringing back lucid memories of summer nights...thanks for sharing

      It is fascinating to think about the kiss as a symbol. What a play on it you have done here, great job! I wonder where it first came from -- as being a symbol of love? Enjoyed the read.

      A feel good without tragedy at the end. You knew I was waiting for it to change! lol

      Great job! Enjoyed it, and feel there's more lurking about than meets the eye within!

      The last two lines "Was it a kiss this gift that came from you, Or just some silly thing that lovers do" I think they're now my favorite lines of poetry ever! You are such a versatile poet! So funny then romantic then serious... I adore your range ^_^

      Beautiful poem. I agree with TToombso8, innocent on the surface, but there's so much more between the lines.

      Great poem, Mhatter! Sweet, slightly innocent but hints at more.
