|A nation is like a body, And the individuals in it the body’s limbs:|
Those who walk the road of industry Are its hands and feet,
|The office of government is its beautiful face,|
And the poet of tuneful melodies is its seeing eye.
|If just one limb should suffer pain, Tears will drop from the eye–|
How anxious the eye is for the whole body!
