Give me a kiss, and to that kiss a score;
Then to that twenty, add a hundred more:
A thousand to that hundred: so kiss on,
To make that thousand up a million.
Treble that million, and when that is done,
Let’s kiss afresh, as when we first begun.

Robert Herrick (1591-1674) English poet
“To Anthea,” Hesperides, # 74 (1648)

See Catullus.
