Kiss Of Love

None saw an old man in his eighties
Throwing a sweet kiss on her cheeks
And she was his wife in late seventies!

His lips were black and dry,
Her cheeks were rough and wrinkled
But it was a sweet kiss given in a shade!

As they soon learnt that
A child had seen them kissing
They blushed in shame.....

A crowd was watching them in all surprise
It included a young pair wrought in lust
And they were just together to kiss in open!

A kiss of love lets out a rhyme
But a kiss of lust raves in a storm
We have to be alerted friends.....

An excellent poem depicting the kind love of the elderly.Enjoyed reading!
A kiss of love lets out a rhyme But a kiss of lust raves in a storm A Beautiful poem, speaks of divinely love and affection which they have carried along with their togetherness. Loved reading it.
kiss of love lets out a rhyme But a kiss of lust raves in a storm. Beautifully said. A kiss has different layers of meaning both vulgar and divine. There is nothing wrong in a kiss if you keep it for yourself and don't reduce it into a road show in the name of some misplaced sense of liberty and freedom. I would like to see a healthy debate on it in today's context. Thank you for this wonderful thought provoking poem. The leaving out of the alphabet ' T' in the word 'Thought' made me retype my comments!
Your nice poem gives a good piece of advice.
