- Cold Mountain – The Kiss
It is the passion that is in a kiss
that gives to it its sweetness;
it is the affection in a kiss
that sanctifies it.
Some are kissing mothers
and some are scolding mothers,
but it is love just the same,
and most mothers kiss
and scold together.
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature
to stop speech when words become superfluous.
The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon,
but its echo lasts a great deal longer.
