594485903

Where is thy anthill O termite?

Live not in a honeycomb

If thou desire life to the leeway:

Where honey lies, there lie stinging bees.

My spouse talks calmly but sings audibly,

The mellow voice sounds like a dove’s coo;

If real doves are calm but sting like a bee,

My spouse is cruel but harmless as a ewe.
