VOL. I
=======

REASON prescribes strict laws for giddy youth
But the warm temper leaps o'er cold decree
And when once past the bounds that should refrain,
Rambles at large, though conscious it should not
Yet, let not
Censure, with its brow austere,
Too heavy fall upon the erring Fair.
He is a choice divine, who practices
That which he preaches others.
'Tis by far
More easy to tell twenty what to do,
Than be the one of twenty who will do it.
