As Four Go By

Four feet:
Two smell brie,
Two smell malt.
They walk
Upon turquoise water,
Upon white sandy beach,
Upon emerald fields,
Upon umber hills.
Four arcs so warm
Turn earth to juniper and brown.

Four lips
Write story
After story
In brevity:
About a quest for sweet and glory,
About a quest of quivering bodies,
In a subtle case
Of an aggravated ache
By two notorious romantic
Over kisses so prolific.

Four ears
Turn exclusive;
So tune—
To racing heart beats,
To om,
To um,
To oh,
To ah, voila!
Grandpa! grandma!

  1. Love this song, and matches your quote above “Of an aggravated ache, By two notorious romantic, Over kisses so prolific.” Now that is romance! Beautiful, a happy read today, thank you Aina 🙂
