Based on a painting of the same name bu Russian artist, Vasily Ivanovich Inchin, 1970, oil on canvas

 

 

 

"Give him up," she said-

as if it was her decision to make

and that things like emotions

could be tossed aside

on the passing breeze

 

But here the days are long and warm

and passions easily set alight

from the slightest rub and shift

within the shuffle of souls

 

Advice given but lectures heard

all youth a fickle nature grown

from rash romantic notions

to actions base and uncontrolled

 

Warnings spoken from well-known places

of men who confuse conquests with love

whose tomorrow finds a love to replace today

self-despising search to feed ego's appetites

 

Alas, age knows all too well what youth denies

deaf as well as with desire's blindfolded eyes

to nowhere leads the trip into his seductive mind

her lesson to be learned of flowered lies

The age-old dilemma of spring hormones colliding with wise experience, accelerated by the long days of a short summer. You paint it well.

Michelle,the youthful mind is often guided along a path whose values are far less complicated than those that have gathered empirical data long -- immediate gratification often finds refuge among such parochial thinking -- this work demonstrates you have mastered the black art of poetry and its innumerable nuances with a special flare my friend -- peace and love be with you always -- JIM

Masterful and full of wisdom. Youth is wasted on the young or so I've been told. Love it. Liz

Magic. I especially like the line, "age knows all too well what youth denies." Well done. A joy to read, as always. J'nia
Reviewed by J. Pajot
Beautiful expression of youthful passion and its dangers. Yet, without those lessons, there would be no wisdom in the years to come. Very nicely done!

Best of all things to you and yours,
Jim
