She is a long, cool drink of vintage wine
Poised before my lips
And held there until the end of time
Savored with little sips
Not drained in one fleeting, clumsy swallow
Bypassing the sensitive tongue
Slowing the flow brings such pleasure to follow
Lessons not learned by the young
With age comes a deepening form of understanding
Of how to sustain that flow,
To savor forever the taste of her I am demanding
And in doing so,
The moment that would otherwise be spent fleeting
Is frozen somehow in time
A choice I chose willingly upon our first meeting
To tend her green growing vine

She will thus ripen, upon lips of mine
She, that way will be, like vintage wine

*gulp*  *sigh*  *BIG SIGH*...
does anybody else think its warm in here  

She is a long, cool drink of vintage wine
Poised before my lips
And held there until the end of time
Savored with little sips
--------
Slowing the flow brings such pleasure to follow
Lessons not learned by the young
With age comes a deepening form of understanding
Of how to sustain that flow,
To savor forever the taste of her I am demanding
------------
She will thus ripen, upon lips of mine
She, that way will be, like vintage wine

this doesnt happen often...but I think I am taken of all my words for the moment...so I'll just sit here and sip the pleasure of this poem (smile)
stalking you always, jm


 Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you
I don't know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be

Thanks JM, as always, you have a way with(or without) words...LOL Go ahead and savor it, the finer things in life need to be slowly savored and last as long as possible.

This is exquisite, just like vintage wine. Wonderful poem!

A quarter of a century must pass, for the writer to understand what and why he writes.
