The most romantic love poems


To Electra

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

I dare not ask a kiss;
  I dare not beg a smile;
Lest having that or this,
  I might grow proud the while.

No, no, the utmost share
  Of my desire shall be,
Only to kiss that air
  That lately kissèd thee.

Robert Herrick (1591 – 1674)
