The Kiss by Joan Brossa – Harry Gilonis / Elizabeth James

(published in alba Londres 02)

The Kiss

seemingly, right at the foot of the tree,
the obstinate grass. I pull
a stalk trampled by many a foot.
Here: take it as a memento
of this evening with me.
A poem
to be carved
in lemonwood.

And how did Daphnis take
the kiss from Chloë?
