Hovanness Aspet Asaturian - TO A KISS

The first time
You awarded me
Your pristine heart
With a passionate
Embrace in the
Twilight stillness
In the tender
Throbbing air
Of fragrance and
Flowers beneath
Entrancing
Scintillating stars
Drunk with the
Delirium of that
Dulcet moment
I sank to my knees
At your feet
As stars burst forth
And descended
Into my sighing soul
In the setting
Twilight while
Soothing melodies
Swayed the flowers
And two hearts
In love divested of
Life’s tedium
By that virigin
Kiss of rapture...

Hovhannes Aspet Asaturian
2002
