I Kissed a Poet during Fall

by Gowri Bhargav

I kissed a poet during fall,

‘neath the cool mellow scarlet sky,

When songs of nature did resound,

Amidst vine maples standing tall.


Willows whispered sweet secrets when

I kissed a poet during fall,

In entwined verses oh! I drowned,

The river of love did consume.


With the twirling leaves I did dance,

Swaying with vivid imageries,

I kissed a poet during fall,

And his passion set me ablaze.


Dreams dangled in autumnal air,

We oft waltzed in a paradise,

Spring bloomed before fall could end ’cause,

I kissed a poet during fall.



This winning poem was written for the contest held in November by ArtoonsInnPoetryParlour.
