The Curious Moon

A young man leads his girlfriend to a tree
one sultry summer eve as night is looming.
the branches of the old oak form a canopy
under which he leans in for a kiss, assuming
his new love also feels their romance blooming.

The pretty girl is innocent and shy,
but from the boy’s sweet kiss she feels that he
might be her one true love; more kisses make a sigh
escape her lips. Her inhibitions flee,
and touching him arouses her curiosity.

Aglow, they feel a passion all-consuming,
undressing one another as fingers fly.
The curious moon, with incandescence blooming,
peeks down from a star-bedazzled sky.
Young love with moon above shall never die.

    You handle the subject matter exquisitely Andrea; it starts out with such innocence and the build up is perfect. Enjoyed reading this gem from beginning to end. Love Elizabeth

    An ageless sence of youthful glow. Emanates from your pens flow. With spirit fresh as newborn love. Your poetry's sent from God above.
