Morning Kiss, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

The Morning KissRomeo and Juliet, Frank Dicksee (1884)

Morning Kiss

Each morning I climb a dangerous vine
In search of the fair maiden Juliet
Her sweet kiss is my daring aim to get
A sign our hearts continue to align
That forever her love is only mine
Lovers joined our hungry lips do we set
The dangers of this kiss does she opine

My Love is no choice for us to linger
Though I sorrow each moment we’re apart
Hold me for a second more then must go
Dare not be caught within my bed chamber
Cold steel surely would meet your heated heart
Together we will die my Romeo

Mimosa Pudica, Robert A Sieczkiewicz

I sneak into the garden to see you,
Choosing you because of your tenderness.
My advance you resist, why, not a clue,
It is for sure you can’t claim my remiss.

From you my inner strength I do maintain,
Without you I do not know where I’d be.
But your strange behavior you must explain,
Can it be a mere lack of trust in me?

When touched you quickly become a hedgehog.
Should I seek you when dark you are bedd’d down.
How can we continue, I am befog.
At this juncture all I can do is frown.

Oft for love many mountains must we climb,
Here for your love I shall give it much time.
