A poem regarding the 'pleasures of youth'. The poem has been titled "Sinful Pleasures" but appears to be derived from a poem called "Irregular Pleasures" with only minor alterations. On either side of the poem are two birds  created with calligraphy flourishes  drawn in ink. Flourishes surround the title. Below are the first few lines from the poem: "By the unhappy excess of irregular pleasures in youth, how many amiable dispositions are corrupted or destroyed. How many rising capacities and  powers [are] supposed. How many flattering hopes of parents and friends are totally extinguished..."  Measures 10" x 8 ..
