I. Admiration
“I fear thy kisses, gentle maiden”
Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
 
I FEAR thy kisses, gentle maiden;
  Thou needest not fear mine;
My spirit is too deeply laden
  Ever to burden 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.
