The Enjoyment
Anonymous
 
(From Miscellany Poems, 1709)

YE Gods! the raptures of that night!
What fierce convulsions of delight!
How in each other’s arms involv’d,
We lay confounded, and dissolved:
Bodies mingling, sexes blending,        5
Which should most be lost contending,
Darting fierce and flaming kisses,
Plunging into boundless blisses;
Our bodies, and our souls on fire,
Tost by a tempest of Desire;        10
Till with utmost fury driven,
Down, at once, we sunk to heaven.
