Lover's night - a poem with two Windows and a door


***********************************

The Door opens

***********************************

Behold behold tis the lover's night
Summer showers cool moonlight
Nectar here nectar there
nectar nectar everywhere

***********************************

Window I

***********************************

Hooting owls and croaking frogs
Crafty cats and fighting dogs
Gentle songs of silver streams
Satin sheets and jasmine dreams

Shining knights and smiling dames
Lissome steeds and magic flames
Golden locks from fairy tales
Underneath her lovely veils

Silent roads and distant trees
shining stars with window breeze
Cradles rocked by rumbling snores
Goodnight kisses and closed doors

***********************************

Window II

***********************************

Wicked hair and wanton sight
lying by the candle light
Goblet of some ancient wine
and tonight she's only mine

Slender neck and hungry eyes
Ripened lips sweetened twice
Now this touch now that kiss
Now a gasp and then a hiss

In my arms her slender waist
Tapering thighs and bosom raised
Lost in pleasure and in pain
Souls together bodies slain

***********************************

Behold behold tis the lover's night
Summer showers cool moonlight
Nectar here nectar there
nectar nectar everywhere

***********************************

The Door closes

@JAB - My personal favourite as well! :-)
@Parvati - Thanks. Much obliged to die hard readers like you.
@Viji - Ok, here goes. The door of the poem is the entry point. From there on the poem can be seen through any of the two windows.The first one is a window of innocence, more like a kid's view. The second is that of passion and desire. And then you leave the poem again by the door. Makes sense?

Though the sun is out there every day everyone longs for and cherishes those sparkling rays that come after a long rain.

Welcome back Agnibarathi. Scorch forth this summer.

I like the second window better. Either I am too old or too young

@MSP - Very generous comments taken with a very very humble bow! Pardon the delayed reply. And yes, I too did like the second window initially...but satin sheets and jasmine dreams won me over! :-D
