The Enjoyment

The Enjoyment

Ye Gods! The raptures of that night!
What fierce convulsions of delight!
How in each other’s arms involv’d
We lay confounded, and dissolved!
Bodies mingling, sexes blending,
Which should most be lost contending,
Darting fierce and flaming kisses,
Plunging into boundless blisses;
Our bodies, and our souls on fire.
Tost by a tempest of Desire;
Till with utmost fury driven,
Down, as once, we sunk to heaven.
