LEAVE A KISS WITHIN THE CUP, by            
First Line: I love not wine; yet if thou'ldst make / a sad man merry, sip first sup
Last Line: And tells the joy it had of thee.
Alternate Author Name(s): Agathias Scholasticos
Subject(s): Kisses


I love not wine; yet if thou'ldst make
A sad man merry, sup first sup,
And when thou giv'st I'll take the cup:
If thy lip touch it, for thy sake
No more may I be stiff and staid
And the luscious jug evade:
The cup convoys thy kiss to me,
And tells the joy it had of thee.
