Poem by George Gordon Byron


To Harriet


1.

Harriet! to see such Circumspection,
In Ladies I have no objection
⁠   Concerning what they read;
An ancient Maid's a sage adviser,
Like her you will be much the wiser,
⁠   In word, as well as Deed.

2.

But Harriet, I don't wish to flatter,
And really think 't would make the matter
   ⁠More perfect if not quite,
If other Ladies when they preach,
Would certain Damsels also teach
⁠   More cautiously to write.
