First Line: When first upon my brow I felt your kiss
Last Line: A throng of ancient kisses vile and vain!
Subject(s): Kisses; Lust


When first upon my brow I felt your kiss,
A sudden splendour filled me, like the ray
That promptly runs to crown the hills with bliss
Of purple dawn before the golden day,
And ends the gloom it crosses at one leap.
My brow was not unworthy your caress;
For some foreboding joy had bade me keep
From all affront the place your lips would bless.

Yet when your mouth upon my mouth did lay
The royal touch, no rapture made me thrill,
But I remained confused, ashamed, and still;
Beneath your kiss, my queen without a stain,
I felt, -- like ghosts who rise at Judgment Day, --
A throng of ancient kisses vile and vain!
