40_Francesco Hayez - The Kiss

Francesco Hayez: The Kiss.

Sweeter than roses, or cool evening breeze

On a warm flowery shore, was the dear kiss,

First trembling made me freeze,

Then shot like fire all o’er.

What magic has victorious love!

For all I touch or see since that dear kiss,

I hourly prove, all is love to me.

Henry Purcell. “Sweeter than Roses”, Z. 585 no. 1 (1695), from Incidental Music to Pausanius, the Betrayer of his Country
