Lady I will touch you

20120215-182027.jpg

Just the other day my best friend shared this gem of an ee cummings poem with me that I had not come across before. His erotic poetry somehow always manages to come across with a hint of innocence, sensual not smutty.

Lady,i will touch you with my mind.
Touch you and touch and touch
until you give
me suddenly a smile,shyly obscene

(lady i will
touch you with my mind.)Touch
you,that is all,

lightly and you utterly will become
with infinite care

the poem which i do not write.

Gentlemen, Valentines day may be behind us but I can guarantee that is poem with some flowers sent to the one you love ‘just because’ will make her happier than you can imagine. I don’t think men realise just how amazing it is to receive flowers, particularly for no better reason than because he is thinking of you.

Here are a two more of cumming’s sensual poems that I recommend:

May I feel said he

I like my body when it’s with your body

The second one is one of my top five cummings poems – I don’t have a favorite, just a favorite for different occasions. I don’t think there is a better way to describe how close you feel to someone by saying I like my body when it’s with your body.
