  The Kiss  

Before you kissed me only winds of heaven
    Had kissed me, and the tenderness of rain--
Now you have come, how can I care for kisses
        Like theirs again?

I sought the sea, she sent her winds to meet me,
    They surged about me singing of the south--
I turned my head away to keep still holy
        Your kiss upon my mouth.

And swift sweet rains of shining April weather
    Found not my lips where living kisses are;
I bowed my head lest they put out my glory
        As rain puts out a star.

I am my love's and he is mine forever,
    Sealed with a seal and safe forevermore--
Think you that I could let a beggar enter
        Where a king stood before?
