Weeping and Kissing
By Sir Edward Sherburne (1618–1702)
 
A KISS I begged, but smiling, she
      Denied it me;
When straight, her cheeks with tears o’erflown—
      Now kinder grown—
What smiling she’d not let me have        5
      She weeping gave.
Then you whom scornful beauties awe,
      Hope yet relief
From Love, who tears from smiles can draw,
      Pleasure from grief.        10
