GORMFLAITH'S SONG, FR. KING LEAR'S WIFE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If you have a mind to kiss me
Last Line: I'll shut mine. Come, have you spied me?
Subject(s): Kisses


If you have a mind to kiss me,
You shall kiss me in the dark:
Yet rehearse, or you might miss me --
Make my mouth your noontide mark.
See, I prim and pout it so;
Now take aim and -- No, no, no!
Shut your eyes, or you'll not learn
Where the darkness soon shall hide me:
If you will not, then, in turn,
I'll shut mine. Come, have you spied me?
