Adultery -/- Children

10:5
Adultery

Sleepers among strangers’ spouses
Reap dangerous shame

Amorous fools lustfully slouch
Watching neighbours doors

Sorrows surround straying spouses;
Solicitors, sinfulness, guilt

Wooing best friends’ partners
Obliterates two families

***

Ignoring other womens’ womanlinesses
Crowns worthy husbands

Spouses pursuing diverse copulation
Lick poisonous snakes

Seducing another woman’s husband
Reduces social kudos


10:6
Children

Deem newborn infant minds
Morn’s untrammelled snow

Voices of giggling nestlings
Sweeter than flutes

Toddler’s touch brings delight
Children’s chatter, joy

First leaders of familes
Our smallest young

***

Even the wisest sages
Inexperienced infants once

When kids assist cookery
Ebullience patters ambrosial

Treasured offspring beaming intelligence
Spreads immeasurable pleasures
