BOOK III.

THREE PAIRS AND A SINGLE.

Two ears and one mouth thou hast;

Dost thou of this. complain ?
Thou much must hear, but must

But little tell again.

Two eyes and one mouth thou hast;

Make thine the truth implied :-
Thou many things must see,
Įn silence

many

hide.

Two hands and one mouth thou hast;

Learn thou from hence, as meet, —
To labour are the two,
And but the one to eat.

RUCKERT.
