Spring, 1935 by Kuzma Petrov-Vodin 






Her eyes saw beyond the Spring.
She dreamt of babies and many new things
His eyes saw beyond her clothes
He longed for loving and a night of joy

  1. Great poem. You've really brought out a deeper story that lies behind the picture. And such a contrast what she thinks of as looking around her, and what he thinks of looking at her. Bravo!
