Kiss given to a Poet.
 
Margaret, daughter of James I. of Scotland and wife of Louis XI. (when only dauphin), kissed the mouth of Alain Chartier “for uttering so many fine things.” Chartier, however, was a decidedly ugly man, and, of course, was asleep at the time.   1
        The tale is sometimes erroneously told of Ronsard the poet.
