In a flower garden
there was a great fountain,
whose beautiful pylon served
from pond to carp, and other fish;
only to irrigation
the gardener attends,
so in the meantime
fish do not have water to live.
Seeing such misrule,
his master rebukes him;
Well, although she wants flowers
feast on fish also want.
And the rude gardener,
so punctual it obeys him,
that plants do not water
so that the water in the basin does not diminish.
After some time
the master to the garden returns;
find the flowers dry,
and angry he says of this luck:
Man don't water so much
that I run out of fish;
do not take care of them so much,
that without flowers, great barbarian, you leave me.
The maxim is trite
more to be repeated must:
do not write who does not know
unite utility with delight.
Moral: The perfection of a work consists in the union of the useful and the pleasant.
