Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


The kiss of friendship, kind and calm,
May fall upon the brow like balm;
A deeper tenderness may speak
In precious pledges on the cheek;
Thrice dear may be, when young lips meet,
Love’s dewy pressure, close and sweet;—
But more than all the rest I prize
The faithful lips that kiss my eyes.
Elizabeth Akers Allen.—Kisses.

I rest content, I kiss your eyes,
I kiss your hair in my delight:
I kiss my hand, and say good-night.
Joaquin Miller.—Isles of the Amazons, Part V. Prelude.
