Extemporary Counsel given to a Young Gallant in a Frolick

Extemporary Counsel given to a Young Gallant in a Frolick

AS you are Young, if you’l be also Wise,
Danger with Honour court, Quarrels despise;
Believe you then are truly Brave and Bold,
To Beauty when no Slave, and less to Gold;
When Vertue you dare own, not think it odd,
Or ungenteel to say, I fear a God.



Poem Extemporary Counsel given to a Young Gallant in a Frolick - Anne Killigrew
