    My merrie, merrie boyes,
    The Christmas Log to the firing;
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    I dare not ask a kiss,
    I dare not beg a smile,
    Lest having that, or this,
    I might grow proud the while.

    Of my desire shall be
    Only to kiss that air
    That lately kissed thee.
