M/M: Kisses Sweeter Than Honey, Catullus XLVIII

Catullus to Iuventius:

Mellitos oculos tuos, Iuventi, 
si quis me sinat usque basiare,
usque ad milia basiem trecenta
nec numquam videar satur futurus,
non si densior aridis aristis
sit nostrae seges osculationis.

--Catullus XLVIII

Translation:
If I could kiss your honey sweet eyes, Iuventius, I would kiss them three hundred thousand times. Nor would I seem to be satisfied if the rows of our kisses were more plentiful than the dry grain of the field.
