Day 205

Kissing time by Eugene Field

‘T is when the lark goes soaring
And the bee is at the bud,
When lightly dancing zephyrs
Sing over field and flood;
When all sweet things in nature
Seem joyfully achime –
‘T is then I wake my darling,
For it is kissing time!Go, pretty lark, a-soaring,
And suck your sweets, 0 bee;
Sing, 0 ye winds of summer,
Your songs to mine and me;
For with your song and rapture
Cometh the moment when
It’s half-past kissing time
And time to kiss again!

So – so the days go fleeting
Like golden fancies free,
And every day that cometh
Is full of sweets for me;
And sweetest are those moments
My darling comes to climb
Into my lap to mind me
That it is kissing time.

Sometimes, maybe, he wanders
A heedless, aimless way –
Sometimes, maybe, he loiters
In pretty, prattling play;
But presently bethinks him
And hastens to me then,
For it’s half-past kissing time
And time to kiss again!

Chocolate.  Right up there at the top of the food pyramid in a food group of its very own.  And Hershey’s Cherry Cordial Kisses?  The very cornerstone of that food group.   sigh…. (I gobbled these up as soon as I turned the camera switch to “off”)
