 “The Sweetest Cherry”
Poem by: Despoina  
In summer time’s the shiny dawn,
   A cherry tree awakens on lawn.
His greenish leaves are flirting shy,
His branches bended down in sigh.

I yearn to taste along with thee,
The cherries of your blossomed tree.
Red juiced fire that burns my soul,
Erupting senses, whispering: “more!”

My guitar’s air, tries to subdue
the midnight’s weep, longing for you.
You bind my heart with just one word;
Defining love in your reword.

The sweetest cherry from my palm
Mellows in mouth like precious balm;
Nourishment for a famished man,
for woman’s love's gentle like flan!
The sweetest cherry from your lips;
Small bites caress my fingertips.
 Love beaded vows, till we are apart;
 Take it, my love, guard it in heart!
