[ Also see Affection Courtship Gallantry Love Parting Women Wooing ]

Blush, happy maiden, when you feel
  The lips which press love's glowing seal;
    But as the slow years darklier roll,
      Grown wiser, the experienced soul
        Will own as dearer far than they
          The lips which kiss the tears away.
      - Elizabeth Akers Allen ("Florence Percy"),

  That we may do but only walk? Methinks

Something made of nothing, tasting very sweet,

      It has no great significance, it loses half its power.
      - Mary E. Buell, The Kiss

My lips pressed themselves involuntarily to hers--a long, long kiss, burning intense--concentrating emotion, heart, soul, all the rays of life's light, into a single focus.

Comin' through the rye, poor body,
  Comin' through the rye,
    She draigl't a' her petticoatie,
      Comin' through the rye
        . . . .
          Gin a body meet a body
            Comin' through the rye,
              Gin a body kiss a body
                Need a body cry?
      - Robert Burns, The Bob-tailed Lass,
        taken from an old song

You would think, if our lips were made of horn and stuck out a foot or two from our faces, kisses at any rate would be done for. Not so. No creatures kiss each other so much as the birds.

When age chills the blood, when our pleasures are past--

    The dearest remembrance will still be the last,
      Our sweetest memorial the first kiss of love.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        The First Kill of Love (st. 7)

Kisses kept are wasted;
  Love is to be tasted.
    There are some you love, I know;
      Be not loath to tell them so.
        Lips go dry and eyes grow wet
          Waiting to be warmly met,
            Keep them not in waiting yet;
              Kisses kept are wasted.
      - Edmund Vance Cooke, Kisses Kept Are Wasted
