Improved love poem

I have changed this slightly:

 

Kneeling in the sand, glistening

from the sea,

you bent your anemone

mouth to kiss my sun-warmed heart

like a big ruby in a treasure chest,

and then I had you squat

by me like a shivering

urchin near a fire,

and asked you to marry me,

knowing your answer.

 

(Julian O’Dea)
