Has no one said those daring
kind eyes should be more learn'd?
Or warned you how despairing
the moths are when they are burned?
I could have warned you; but you are young,
so we speak a different tongue.
O you will take whatever's offered
and dream that all the world's a friend,
suffer as your mother suffered,
be as broken in the end.
But I am old and you are young,
and I speak a barbarous tongue.
