Lines Addressed To The Rev. J.T. Becher, On His Advising The Author To Mix More With Society
by George Gordon, Lord Byron (composed: 1806)
Dear Becher, you tell me to mix with mankind;
I cannot deny such a precept is wise;
But retirement accords with the tone of my mind:
I will not descend to a world I despise.
Some musings need no words.
