First Line: Exquisite masquer, who dost changeful flit
Last Line: Stay till I fetch thee from those mellow lips.
Subject(s): Perfume; Seduction


EXQUISITE masquer, who dost changeful flit
Upon the sun-hatched zephyr, basking now
In the broad light, 'mongst roses thou dost sit,
On crimson throne in the thorn-guarded bough,
Veiled by pink curtains, which will scarce admit
To thine embrace the bee with velvet brow;
Or winger as incense, rising to the sun,
A dove-like messenger thou bearest the prayer;
Or dost alight where streamlets gently run,
Gilding in dew adown the morning air;
Or bashfully dost common notice shun,
Dividing as a kiss the ruby pair,
Which the coquetting night-wind only sips;
Stay till I fetch thee from those mellow lips.
