Quotes About Blush



Who has not seen that feeling born of flame
Crimson the cheek at mention of a name?
The rapturous touch of some divine surprise
Flash deep suffusion of celestial dyes:
When hands clasped hands, and lips to lips were pressed
And the heart's secret was at once confessed?

Into her face; a thousand innocent shames
In angel whiteness bear away those blushes.

To revel in the roses.

Half wishing they were dead to save the shame.

They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats,
And flare up bodily, wings and all.
