Lucy Ashton's Song
Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832), English poet                      
reading of Scott's Lucy Ashton's Song

Look not thou on beauty's charming;
Sit thou still when kings are arming;
Taste not when the wine-cup glistens;
Speak not when the people listens;
Stop thine ear against the singer;
From the red gold keep thy finger;
Vacant hand and heart and eye.
Easy live and quiet die.
