KISSES DESIRED, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Though I with strange desire
Last Line: After one kiss, but still one kiss, my dear.
Alternate Author Name(s): Drummond, William
Subject(s): Kisses; Love


Though I with strange desire
To kiss those rosy lips am set on fire,
Yet will I cease to crave
Sweet touches in such store,
As he who long before
From Lesbia them in thousands did receive.
Heart mine, but once me kiss,
And I by that sweet bliss
Even swear to cease you to importune more;
Poor one no number is;
Another word of me ye shall not hear
After one kiss, but still one kiss, my dear.
