Placement of Interrogative Clitic -ne

By Gregorius, in 'Latin Grammar Questions', Nov 6, 2019.

    I'm polishing off a Latin version of "All I Want For Christmas," and there's one couplet that I'm not sure about.

    Santa, won't you bring the only one I really need?
    Won't you please bring my baby to me quickly?

    Currently, I have..

    Sancte Nicolae, illum quem cupiō vērē
    Mīne tandem celerrimē ferēs?

    My question is whether it's permissible to attach the interrogative clitic -ne to a word in the middle of a question rather than at the beginning.

    I'd imagine it's fine in poetry.
