Percy Bysshe Shelley

(1792-1822 / Horsham / England)

To-- I Fear Thy Kisses, Gentle Maiden


I.
I fear thy kisses, gentle maiden,
Thou needest not fear mine;
My spirit is too deeply laden
Ever to burthen thine.

II.
I fear thy mien, thy tones, thy motion,
Thou needest not fear mine;
Innocent is the heart’s devotion
With which I worship thine.

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
