Original text and translations
Who lookes may leape and save his shins from knocks,
Who tries may trust, else flattring friends shall find,
He saves the Steed, that keepes him under locks,
Who speaks with heed may boldly speake his mind,
But he whose tongue before his wit doth runne,
Often speakes too soone, and grieves when he hath done.
