Poem by Robert Burns


The First Kiss at Parting


Humid seal of soft affections,
  	Tenderest pledge of future bliss,
Dearest tie of young connections,
  	Loves first snowdrop, virgin kiss!

Speaking silence, dumb confession,
  	Passions birth, and infants play,
Dove-like fondness, chaste concession,
  	Glowing dawn of future day!

Sorrowing joy, adieus last action,
  	(Lingering lips must now disjoin);
What words can ever speak affection
  	So thrilling and sincere as thine?

1788
