Kowhai Gold

[Frank Morton]

page 166

A kiss is something short and sweet,
Which may be lengthened so discreetly
That Love shall mock the prude's conceit,
"A kiss is something short."  And, Sweet—

Is youth; let's test the thing completely:
A kiss is something short and sweet
Which may be lengthened—so! … Discreetly?
