Be My Lover

by Tony Whitaker

I love a mountain’s winter face
My alpine bride to be
I live to stroke her silken trails
And hear her broken snow,
As though she softly whispers,
“Caress my cool and velvet crust
And I shall sate your thirst to ski

Each turn I take effects a snake
As I tattoo her soft skin
And feel the pleasure
With each playful measure, then
Sense the coming, to our end

But then to mount her once again
I spy her splendor as we peak
And there be no measure
Which gives such pleasure
As my Alpine bride to be


Author's Note: I love to ski. Though Colorado has the champagne snow, with Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone and Snowmass as my favorites there. I am blessed to live in Switzerland where the views from these craggy,lofty peaks make you feel like making love.

My father considered even a walk among the mountains as the equivalent of church going. The Alps must then be like a trip to the Vatican! Wonderful, Tony! Thanks.

I remember waking to the sight of the Matterhorn dripping strawberry sauce. Though I don't ski, the scenery of your words here makes me wonder why :>

I love your love affair with the mountain and her pleasure-giving skin. I don't think I have ever read a poem about skiing, so this one if a delightful revelation. Snow skiing is one of the things I wanted to do before I died, but now I am too fricking old and out of shape and would probably kill myself. But your poem helps me to take in that experience in a small but artful dose. Thanks, Tony.
