REWARDS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Because you cried, I kissed you, and
Last Line: She would not kiss me when she smiled.
Subject(s): Kisses


Because you cried, I kissed you, and,
Ah me! how should I understand
That piteous little you were fain
To cry and to be kissed again?

Because you smiled at last, I thought
That I had found what I had sought;
But soon I found, without a doubt,
No man can find a woman out.

I kissed your tears, and did not stay
Till I had kissed them all away;
Ah, hapless me! ah, heartless child!
She would not kiss me when she smiled.
