Catullus

Original Text: 
Bell, Julian. Work from the Winter and Other Poems. London: Hogarth Press, 1936: 42.
1Kiss before we sleep
2A thousand times again,
3And love close-guarded keep:
4Though this night we wake
5With the grey sun's light,
6Returning dawns will break
7While we in our long night,
8Past pleasure or pain,
9Nor turn nor kiss again.
