Impetuous whispered adorable phrases,
Erotic delight and eager embraces
Encourages sympathy, calls for seduction,
Which brings about certain enraptured eruption.
Somewhere two lovers stand watching and chaste
Temptation or charm fits his arm ’round her waist
Ardour increased in rash osculation
Breeds passion or fancy or sweet inclination.
Thundery moments cause infatuation
Gazes and smiles grant amused adoration
Desire expands or beguiles persuasion
But nothing prevents intermittent abrasion.
Partiality wavers, but desire wins out
One or the other ends up a devout
Laughter, forgiveness, confusion, and sweat
Cause for anxiety but fret not as yet.
Still, the attraction weighs out every worry
Although fascination becomes somewhat blurry.
The one, only hope for such apt predilection
Is finding protection in partners’ perfection.
Do not regret such yearning enhancement
As life grants such bliss, such bewitching enchantment
