"When we reached the
place for goodnight I could not let him go as he had always done before, but
put my hands round his head and drew it down to mine and kissed his mouth
and looked close into his eyes. And... he caught me in his arms and pressed
me to him and kissed my mouth and my eyes and my neck; blindly and fiercely
he kissed me.... When I was in bed I could not sleep, but lay trembling half
with fear, half with wonder, at what I had awakened in him."
H. Thomas, English Writer
