Ancient Thoughts

ANCIENT THOUGHTS

Inscribed on the walls
of an ancient Persian temple
are these thoughts:


Do not say all you know,
for he who says all he knows
often says more than he knows.


Do not tell all you hear,
for he who tells all he hears
often tells more than he hears.


Do not spend all you have,
for he who spends all he has
often spends more than he has.


Do not covet all you see,
for he who covets all he sees
often wants more than he sees.

THE CRITIC

A little seed lay on the ground,
and soon began to sprout;

"Now, which of all the flowers around,"
It mused, "shall I come out?"

"The lily's face is fair and proud,
But just a trifle cold;

The rose, I think, is rather loud,
And then, its fashion's old."

"The violet is all very well,
But not a flower I'd choose;

Nor yet the Canterbury Bell-
I never cared for blues."

And so it criticized each flower,
This supercilious seed,

Until it woke one summer morn,
And found itself--- a weed.
