Kisses Loathesome by Robert Herrick


I abhor the slimie kiss,
(Which to me most loathsome is.)
Those lips please me which are plac't
Close, but not too strictly lac't:
Yielding I wo'd have them; yet
Not a wimbling Tongue admit:
What sho'd poking sticks make there,
When the ruffe is set elsewhere.


Wimbling=boring a hole.
Poking sticks = for stiffening ruffs.

He's fairly particular is Mr Herrick
