lovers’ pledge

may I caress you always without pause
so as to make of you a fond ecstasy
of lilies and wild roses   blooms
moaning with delight in a garden
of wrinkled silk dyed the color
of lilacs lustrous   glowing

may I touch you ever without haste
in such manner that your skin becomes
a shining nebula of nerves firing
utterly beguiled and beguiling
under these my loving hands

may we always be filled with sweet madness
so as to fuse in passion’s heat
abubble with love’s fever
with sighs and love’s secretions
that chant songs of flesh con brío
through the shameless night
