William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
To Electra
By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
 
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        5
  Of my desire shall be
Only to kiss that air
  That lately kissèd thee.
