I Fear Thy Kisses, Gentle Maiden

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;
...Thou needest not fear mine;
Innocent is the heart's devotion
...With which I worship thine.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
