River’s Lip

on the riverbank
memories of lovers past
echoes of kisses

My response to Carpe Diem #1301 River’s Lip

Yesterday Chèvrefeuille gave us ‘The Rose’, which I thought was quatrain XX1V of the Rubaiyat, but which he has numbered XVIII. He also promised today”s quatrain that makes ‘The Rose’ complete.
