COUNCIL, by                
First Line: Do not go to the hunted hill
Last Line: Blind your daring eyes.

Do not go to the hunted hill
Where the wild grape entwines.
You will be stabbed by poisoned thorns
And throttled by dark vines.

Do not wade in the willow stream
Where no cool waters flow,
For those dry beds are fathomless
A thousand depths below.

Do not walk in the witches' wood,
Lest tiger leaves arise,
Or tangled web of spider should
Blind your daring eyes.
