O Blush not so!
by John Keats (January 31st, 1818).

O blush not so! O blush not so!
    Or I shall think you knowing;
And if you smile the blushing while,
    Then maidenheads are going.

There's a blush for won't, and a blush for shan't,
    And a blush for having done it;
There's a blush for thought, and a blush for nought,
    And a blush for just begun it.

O sigh not so! O sigh not so!
    For it sounds of Eve's sweet pippin;
By these loosen'd lips you have tasted the pips
    And fought in an amorous nipping.

Will you play once more at nice-cut core,
    For it only will last our youth out,
And we have the prime of the kissing time,
    We have not one sweet tooth out.

There's a sigh for yes, and a sigh for no,
    And a sigh for I can't bear it!
O what can be done, shall we stay or run?
    O cut the sweet apple and share it!
