Percy Bysshe Shelley Poem
Epigram Ii: Kissing Helena
 by Percy Bysshe Shelley

From the Greek of Plato.

Kissing Helena, together
With my kiss, my soul beside it
Came to my lips, and there I kept it,--
For the poor thing had wandered thither,
To follow where the kiss should guide it,
Oh, cruel I, to intercept it!
