Setting The Mood For Passionate Reading

by Samuel De Lemos

Show me a prologue,
Forward,
Or a
Preface to a book—

And I’ll tell you
If it’s
Worth a second look.

A good read
Deserves a
Meticulous introduction

That sets
An engaging
Tone;
A sneak peak
for what
lies ahead.

Like the giving of
Hors d’oeuvre’s
Before a
Festive meal

Opens up
One’s palette—

So must the
Prologue

Give the
Book’s
Content a
Captivating
Tenor.

Similar to
Sensual negligée

That a desiring
Husband
Sees
On his
His loving wife—

Secretly
Thinking—

The
Vision
Before me,

I can’t wait

To devour.

Embellishing the
Mood

For a
Passion filled
Night.
