Poem by George Gordon Byron


Epistle to a Young Nobleman in Love


Hail! generous youth, whom glorys sacred flame
Inspires, and animates to deeds of fame;
Who feel the noble wish before you die
To raise the finger of each passer-by:
Hail! may a future age admiring view
A Falkland or a Clarendon in you.
But as your blood with dangerous passion boils,
Beware! and fly from Venus silken toils:
Ah! let the head protect the weaker heart,
And Wisdoms ægis turn on Beautys dart.



George Gordon Byron
