Lover’s Kiss

jealous-dawnNight’s frosty kiss
Lingers gently on
Her lover’s lips

As jealous Dawn
Parts the earth and sky,
Eclipsing Night’s dark beauty
With her blinding light.

Night’s frosty kiss
Lingers,
Still and soft and sweet,
Upon Earth’s stubbled cheek and
Smooth, unworried brow,
Even as the jealous Dawn parts the
Lovers
Once again.
