George Gordon Byron (Джордж Гордон Байрон)


Queries to Casuists


The Moralists tell us that Loving is Sinning,
⁠   And always are prating about and about it,
But as Love of Existence itself's the beginning,
   ⁠Say, what would Existence itself be without it?


They argue the point with much furious Invective,
⁠   Though perhaps 'twere no difficult task to confute it;
But if Venus and Hymen should once prove defective,
⁠   Pray who would there be to defend or dispute it?

                                          Byron.
