"Her face / Her tongue / Her wit"

Her face / Her tongue / Her wit
so fair / so sweet / so sharp
first bent / then drew / then hit
mine eye / mine ear / my heart

Read the complete poem here.

Prince and lady prolong their intercourse, c.1790

It is a fun poem. I've always found a sly sarcasm in it, but maybe that is my own cynicism.
