The Kiss (Lovers), a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Klimt-The Kiss

The Kiss (Lovers), Robert A. Sieczkiewicz
It is fall, the golden time, when thy shall
Leave my gardens as Persephone will.
Worthless to lock thee with horses in corral.
Then go. Leave me without love, without thrill.

Wait, delay, the ground remains soft and warm.
Lie with me on the meadow’s new mown hay.
Come close, let me prop thy head with my arm,
So you hear every word of love I say.

These two moist lips are ripe as thy body.
Pressing my body against thine. Hearts are
Racing. From our love will soon embody,
Thy equal of beauty under our star.

Winter will soon come and the fields shall sleep,
While patiently I wait our love to reap.

The Kiss (Lovers) was painted by the Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt in 1908.  This painting was the pinnacle of what is referred to as his “Golden Period,” when he painted several works in this gilded style.

While searching for paintings that would inspire me to write I did a search “The Kiss.”  One such work I posted yesterday.  Of course another one is what you see today, but there are many more.  The message is the kiss is an important part of human life.  And of course the kiss is an important prelude to sexual intercourse.  The tongue being part of the erogenous zone of the mouth also has a significant role in sexual behavior.

To me kissing is interesting as well as exciting when I am the recipient.  On that note I may just spend some time and do a third The Kiss.
