To A Kiss

Robert Burns was a Scottish poet and lyricist.






Humid seal of soft affections,
  Tend'rest pledge of future bliss,
Dearest tie of young connections,
  Love's first snow-drop, virgin kiss.

Speaking silence, dumb confession,
  Passion's birth, and infants' play,
Dove-like fondness, chaste concession,
  Glowing dawn of brighter day.

Sorrowing joy, adieu's last action,
  Ling'ring lips, -- no more to join!
What words can ever speak affection
  Thrilling and sincere as thine!
