Pagina 139 - Now, said the nymph, to let you see My actions with your rules agree ; That I can vulgar forms despise, And have no secrets to disguise ; I knew, by what you said and writ, How dangerous things were men of wit ; You caution'd me against their charms, But never gave me equal arms ; Your lessons found the weakest- part, Aim'd at the head, but reach'd the heart.
