Short Love Poems

Midsummer
Poet: Sydney King Russell

You loved me for a little,
Who could not love me long'
You gave me wings of gladness
And lent my spirit song.

You loved me for an hour
But only with your eyes;
Your lips I could not capture
By storm or by surprise.

Your mouth that I remember
With rush of sudden pain
As one remembers starlight
Or roses after rain...

Out of a world of laughter
Suddenly I am sad...
Day and night it haunts me,
The kiss I never had.

A Kiss
by Robert Herrick

Give me a kiss,
Add to that kiss a score;
Then to that twenty,
Add a hundred more:
A thousand to that hundred:
So kiss on,
To make that thousand up a million.
Triple that million,
And when that is done,
Letís kiss afresh,
As when we first begun.
