"To my edification, adore the ear,
They will save you from mistakes.
The life of a person is affected by the environment
Dangerous it is sometimes.
Appreciate your youth, take care of her,
See that it does not burn the flame of passion.
Thin inclinations from the heart chase -
The tormenting shame they engender. ”
