    Kisses Loathsome
    by Robert Herrick (1591-1674)

    I abhor the slimy kiss,
    Which to me most loathsome is.
    Those lips please me which are placed
    Close, but not too strictly laced:
    Yielding I would have them; yet
    Not a wimbling tongue admit:
    What should poking-sticks make there,
    When the ruffe is set elswhere?
