NEW YORK (OCN) — A Queens, New York man recalls his first kiss in Central Park which has many romantic places and publishes it as a poem.
It was six, maybe seven hours ago
That I was watching kids playing in the snow.
They looked so happy and had much fun
As they laughed, screamed jumped and run.
I wanted to join but I was too old
And besides that would have been bold.
So I remained seated and tapped my feet
While my iPod played a funky beat.
A few minutes later a lady arrived
With a little boy by her side.
She stooped and gave him a hug
Then he scurried off like a little bug.
I slid down the bench to make some space
And as she came closer, I could make out her face.
She was so pretty and elegant that I started to smile
And quite possible could have been seen for miles.
“Good morning” she said as she proceeded to sit
I responded “Hi! A lovely day isn’t it?”
She told me her name and I think its French
And thanked my lucky stars that I choose this bench.
A bus came to pick up the kids
And that exactly what it did.
It was just us two and the birds in the tree
Chirping away happily.
“Well” she said “I have to go”
“I’m getting cold and can’t feel my toes!”
She got her purse and prepared to go
And fell after two steps into the snow.
“Are you okay” as I rushed to her side
And stepped on my lace and landed on my hide.
We sat up and stared at each other and laughed it up
As the wind blew around a Dixie Cup.
“I didn’t know you’d fall for me so quick” I said
And she proceeded to throw a snowball at my head.
I thought she throw like a girl
But it connected and knocked me out of this world.
I pushed her over back in the snow
And it totally boost my ego.
I said to her “I’m King of the snow”
“And I’m not letting you up until you say so!”
I gazed in her eyes and she into mine
And I felt like a schoolboy in the summer time.
I slowly drew closer to reach for a kiss
And she closed her eyes and pouted her lips.
The time was cold but her lips were warm
And I felt so awesome she’s falling for my charm.
“Hey get a room” I heard a few feet away
And she opened her eyes and turned that way.
She put her hands around me and said “Let’s give ’em a show”
And we stayed kissing and cuddling up in the snow.
