Catherine Cockburn

...Ah, gaze not on those eyes! forbear
...That soft enchanting voice to hear:
Not looks of basilisks give surer death,
Nor Syrens sing with more destructive breath.

...Fly, if thy freedom thou'dst maintain,
...Alas! I feel th'advice is vain!
A heart, whose safety but in flight does lie,
Is too far lost to have the power to fly.

.....The Vain Advice by Catherine Cockburn (1679-1749)
