Love Birds

~~~

As birds are fitted to the boughs

twined together and as is customary

we sing together; we sing mouth to mouth

and in the sweetest passage of a song

all the longings of a lifetime answered

I look at you and sigh...

I like this poem! It is very short and sweet. I liked the imagery of "singing mouth to mouth;" I feel like it's a metaphor for kissing. Overall, this has a springy and earthy feel to it, and I enjoy that in relation to love. Well done!

Truly romantic you made the beautiful school days alive... Very simple and deep. I liked the last line " in the sweetest passage of the song, all the longings of a lifetime answered" beautiful.

Beautiful use of words and art. The poem was amazing. Dear Julie, you did a excellent job with the words.

singing mouth to mouth...the sweet, passionate melody of the kiss


nicely done.

you had Yeats on the list...reminds me of how excited sylvia plath was about moving into her final house...the one that he had lived in, and it still had the plaque on the door, "yeats lived here"
perhaps he lives within your words.

I didn't know that about Sylvia Plath. Wouldn't that be amazing to live where Yeats had lived...read more
