On Fruition
By Sir Charles Sedley (1639–1701)
(Works, 1722)

NONE, but a Muse in love, can tell
The sweet tumultuous joys I feel,
When on Cælia’s breast I lie,
When I tremble, faint, and die;
Mingling kisses with embraces,        5
Darting tongues, and joining faces,
Panting, stretching, sweating, cooing,
All in the ecstasy of doing.
