Were kisses all the joys in bed,
One woman would another wed.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) English dramatist and poet
In William Jaggard, ed., The Passionate Pilgrim, Part 2 “Sonnets to Sundry Notes of Music,” No. 19 “When as thine eye hath chose the dame,” l. 345-46 (1599)

Though Jaggard claimed all the poems in the collection were by Shakespeare, most of them (including this one) is generally not considered to actually be by him.
