Like a Knight

When I see the mesmerizing image

Of robins and seagulls sitting like a sage,

I usually get swept off my feet

And I feel like a kid

On whom the moon has effect

With all her grace at its best.


With each sip of the cider

As sweet as puffs of the cigar,

I look at the clouds rumbling

In the sky and grumbling

Over a quarrel of not being kissed

By the lofty mountains they missed.


I succumb to a distant memory,

So clear, so succinct, so white as ivory,

And all seem like a passing dream

Scintillating like light beams.


I touch my lips, still moist

And to more kisses all poised,

I feel your touches everywhere

Like the mellowed rays of the sun here and there.


I look at nature flaunting

In her new attire so revealing,

Neither wailing nor repenting

And the negative, always nullifying.


I try to silence my flaming passions

With neither excuse nor pretensions,

And there,  you come, like a knight

Ushering  so many dreams for the night.


The wanton  wind, soft and soothing,

Sweet love transmitting,

Accompanies us to the ragged hut

Where we eat chocolate and nuts

And make love, sometimes mild

And most of the time wild

Until we fall off to sleep

Traveling in love’s valleys steep.
