Indian moose1three young at once doth bear,
trebles2both her comforts and her
3Them equally she loves, none worst or best:
4Not like the ape which doth her love attest
huggling4that she loves until it die;
railing5, at her back
her7policy would make one
every one9a mile asunder,
9That if her foes on one of them should light,
10The other two are savéd by this
patr’arch so divided his three bands11,
12To save them from his cruel brothers’ hands.
13So merchants will not venture all they have
14Within three inches of the swelling wave.
15Let parents learn by what is writ above
16To manifest to children equal love:
17Not like the
eagle12, who her young doth try
18By the transcendent brightness of
19Those which can’t stare on
disesteems16as bastard brats and base;
wanting17then her noble education,
kites18and keep their fashion.
23So ’tis when parents do a difference make:
24Then, O, that counsel let me ever take.
