Letitia Elizabeth Landon Quote

Do any thing but love ; or if thou lovest
And art a Woman, hide thy love from him
Who thou dost worship ; never let him know
How dear he is ; flit like a bird before him, —
Lead him from tree to tree, from flower to flower ;
But be not won, or thou wilt, like that bird,
When caught and caged, be left to pine neglected,
And perish in forgetfulness.


(26th April 1823) Fragment - Do any thing but love ; or if thou lovest - The London Literary Gazette
