Advice To a Girl


Never love unless you can
  Bear with all the faults of a man!
     Men sometimes will jealous be
     Though but little cause they see
  And hang the head as discontent
  And speak what straight they will repent.

  Men that but one saint adore
  Make a show of love to more
     Beauty must be scorned in one:
  For what is courtship but disguise?
  True hearts may have dissembling eyes.

  Men, when their affairs require
  Must awhile themselves retire
     Sometimes hunt, and sometimes hawk
     And not ever sit and talk—
  If these and such—like you can bear
  Then like, and love, and never fear!


~Lord Byron~
