When youthful glance bestows first kiss,
‘Tis only eyes that meet.
No lips yet savour lovers’ bliss
And taste of treasures sweet.
A smile, so chaste and so unsure,
Finds refuge in the other,
Promises of pleasures pure
In dream-filled sleep do hover.
Temptation lingers ever close,
Portrays a deep desire,
But, only eyes reveal the heart
With passion, fuelled by fire.
Embers turn to flaming glow,
First touch sends sparks to light,
Minouche – touch lightly – skin to skin,
Innocent, sheer delight.
The well of love runs deeper still
And plunges to its base,
Lips are nearer – tentative –
Soft face upon soft face.
First kiss bestowed in trust and grace,
With love so deeply borne,
Enfolds young lovers in velvet, soft
Enwrapped and ever warm.
Oliana, thanks for minouche.
Shaun, thanks for planting the idea of first love.

They always say you remember your first kiss…by which I assume they’re talking about your first romantic kiss and not the slimy one planted against one’s will by maiden aunts at Christmas.
If that sounded like a maiden aunt’s first kiss I’m giving up. Right enough, my first kiss was really two heads getting bumped together under the mistletoe. But, I don’t count that one.x
I love this…I can feel the build up of that first kiss …beautiful…a slight minouche:) lovely. the last 2 lines in French we often say “un coup de velour” a shot of velvet (not quite as beautifully said as you did)…very very nice:)
I just love the sound of that word since I ‘heard’ you say it. I’m presuming the pronunciation is ‘min – oosh’? I didn’t know that about the velvet. I like the feel of it. Like stroking skin.
Glad you enjoyed it. I might coming look for more French words. I don’t think, ‘Il est dans le jardin’ would work too well in poems. Although…..x
French is not my mother tongue btw, but they are expressions I grew up with. Minouche minoche are terms of endearment I would say to my kids when they were little…you pronounced it correctly.
It’s a lovely little world. Does exactly what it says on the tin.x
That Was Beautiful! It Took Me Back In Time.
Yes, the first one can be quite special. Maybe the first one with a new love too. Glad you enjoyed.x
