Salome
by Oscar Wilde

Ah! I have kissed thy mouth, Iokanaan,
I have kissed thy mouth.
There was a bitter taste on thy lips.
Was it the taste of blood... Nay;
but perchance it was the taste of love...
They say that love hath a bitter taste...
But what matter? what matter?
I have kissed thy mouth, Iokanaan,
I have kissed thy mouth.
