FROM THE HINDOOSTANEE.

FROM THE GULISTAN.

· BROTHER, know the world deceiveth ;
Trust on him who safety giveth ;
Fix not on the world thy trust,
She feeds us — but she turns to dust;
And the bare earth or kingly throne
Alike may serve to die upon.'

EROM.THE SAME.

[ocr errors]

The man who 1&aveth lfe behind,
May well and boldly speak hiš mina;
Where fligjit is nope: fipm baule field,
We blithelyesnáticle the sword and shield;
Where bape,is past, and hate is strong,
The wrętels tongue is skart and long;
Myself have seen, in. wild despair,
The feeble cat the mastiff tear.'

FROM THE SAME.

· Who the silent man can prize,
If a fool he be or wise ?
Yet, though lonely seem the wood,
Therein may lurk the beast of blood.
Often bashful looks conceal
Tongue of fire and heart of steel,

And deem not thou, in forest gray, . Every dappled skin thy prey ;

Lest thou rouse, with luckless spear, The tiger for the fallow-deer.'
