‘THE KISS’ -A POEM BY ROBERT GRAVES !

“The Kiss”

Are you shaken, are you stirred
By a whisper of love,
Spellbound to a word
Does Time cease to move,
Till her calm grey eye
Expands to a sky
And the clouds of her hair
Like storms go by?
Then the lips that you have
kissed
Turn to frost and fire,
And a white-steaming mist
Obscures desire:
So back to their birth
Fade water, air, earth,
And the First Power moves
Over void and dearth.
Is that Love? no, but Death,
A passion, a shout,
The deep in-breath,
The breath roaring out,
And once that is flown,
You must lie alone,
Without hope, without life,
Poor flesh, sad bone.

ROBERT GRAVES.

‘DELAY’ — A POEM BY ELIZABETH JENNINGS !

”Delay”

The radiance of the star that
leans on me
Was shining years ago. The light
that now
Glitters up there my eyes may
never see,
And so the time lag teases me
with how
Love that loves now may not
reach me until
Its first desire is spent. The star’s
impulse
Must wait for eyes to claim it
beautiful
And love arrived may find us
somewhere else.
