Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
The kiss of friendship, kind and calm,
May fall upon the brow like balm;
  A deeper tenderness may speak
  In precious pledges on the cheek;
Thrice dear may be, when young lips meet,
Love’s dewy pressure, close and sweet;—
  But more than all the rest I prize
  The faithful lips that kiss my eyes.
        Elizabeth Akers Allen.—Kisses.
  I rest content, I kiss your eyes,
I kiss your hair in my delight:
I kiss my hand, and say good-night.
        Joaquin Miller.—Isles of the Amazons, Part V. Prelude.
