To A Kiss ~ Robert Burns
Humid seal of soft affection,
Tend'rest pledge of future bliss,
Dearest tie of young connections,
Loves's first snow-drop, virgin kiss.
Speaking silence, dumb confession,
Passion's birth, and infant's play,
Dove like fondness, chaste concession,
Glowing dawn of brighter day.
Sorrowing joy, adieus last action,
Lingering lips, ...no more to join!
What words can ever speak affection
Thrilling and sincere as thine!
