To Mrs.. On Her Beautiful Translation of Voiture's Kiss

ON HER BEAUTIFUL TRANSLATION OF VOITURE'S KISS .

How heavenly was the poet's doom,
To breathe his spirit through a kiss;
And lose within so sweet a tomb
The trembling messenger of bliss!
And, sure his soul returned to feel
That it again could ravished be;
For in the kiss that thou didst steal,
His life and soul have fled to thee.
