For Those Who Kiss Gypsies



Never cross a gypsy.

Never break her heart.

The moon will split and fall

Like silver coins into a fountain--

Beware the closing in of night.


Never kiss a gypsy.

Never think you can just walk if you do.

All wolves are sisters--

They are silent, so silent,

But nonetheless eloquent in the end.


One thing I forgot to say--

All women...

All women...

Are gypsies.

All liars will be found out,

And all paths home are long, uncertain and poorly lit.

Wow! That was a brilliant piece - simple yet powerful. Not too many people can put down their thoughts in verse. You're truly brilliant!

The last line - "And all paths home are long, uncertain and poorly lit" encapsulates the whole mood of the poem! Bravo! Bravo!!
