LOVE A SPIRIT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I told jacinta t'other day
Last Line: And I can feel him on your lips.
Subject(s): Love

I TOLD Jacinta t'other day,
As in a pleasant bow'r we sate,
Sporting and chatting time away,
Of Love, and of I know not what;

That Love's a spirit, some maintain,
From whom (say they) we're seldom free;
He gives us both delight and pain,
Yet him we neither touch, nor see.

But when I view (said I) your eyes,
I can perceive he thither skips,
He now about them hov'ring flies,
And I can feel him on your lips.
