Look not in my eyes for fear

 Look not in my eyes, for fear 
Thy mirror true the sight I see, 
And there you find your face too clear 
And love it and be lost like me.
One the long nights through must lie Spent in star-defeated sighs, But why should you as well as I Perish? gaze not in my eyes.
A Grecian lad, as I hear tell, One that many loved in vain, Looked into a forest well And never looked away again.
There, when the turf in springtime flowers, With downward eye and gazes sad, Stands amid the glancing showers A jonquil, not a Grecian lad.
