"What Lips My lips Have Kissed"


"What lips my lips have kissed"
What sighs my heart has known
When summer was once nigh
those lips were ripe and mine

Love converged my soul, my heart
I remember your kisses warm and tender
Now a kiss is a memory long gone

Oh but of his bliss I have known
being and form I have been
my Ecstasy his hand and his touch

Thus all, all treasured by me
Come lover and lie close
to my willing body

For"what lips my lips have kissed"
come lover to my soul
And we shall shun the starlit Sky's

Alluring, sensual, romantic, poignant and yes I do hear Millay in this in a line or two. Nice.

Meri said...

Yes. . . as Noelle says, very sensual. Question: was know supposed to be known in the first or second stanza? (Thanks for leaving me a comment, btw)
