William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Georgian Verse.  1909.
 
To ——
By Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
 
I FEAR thy kisses, gentle maiden,
  Thou needest not fear mine;
My spirit is too deeply laden
  Ever to burthen thine.
 
I fear thy mien, thy tones, thy motion,        5
  Thou needest not fear mine;
Innocent is the heart’s devotion
  With which I worship thine.
