,M$URING -MOVIE KISSES
BY LOTTIE BRISCOE
You ask me to measure out a kiss,
Its length upon the screen!
You'll ask me next to analyze
Of Cupid's bow Its sheen!
You'll ask me soon to weigh in tons
The bloom on butterfly;
Or write you down in yards arid miles
The depth of baby's cry!
You'll soon require the weight exact
Of mother's first sweet "riusn,-"
Or ask correct in foot and inch
TJie d.eptti-ond''bJuabj, ,
You'll seek to find the cubic feet
Of light in lover's eyes;
Or want to know in quarts and pints
The depths of lovers' sighs!
There is no Jieight, no length, no
In happiness or bliss,
There is no medium known to me
Can measure up a kiss.
