John Bunyan (Джон Баньян)


Upon the Pismire


Must we unto the pismire go to school,
To learn of her in summer to provide
For winter next ensuing. Man's a fool,
Or silly ants would not be made his guide.
But, sluggard, is it not a shame for thee
To be outdone by pismires? Pr'ythee hear:
Their works, too, will thy condemnation be
When at the judgment-seat thou shalt appear.
But since thy God doth bid thee to her go,
Obey, her ways consider, and be wise;
The piss-ant tell thee will what thou must do,
And set the way to life before thine eyes. 



John Bunyan's other poems:
  1. How Graces Are to Be Obtained
  2. Of the Love of Christ
  3. Meditations upon a Candle
  4. Upon the Whipping of the Top
  5. The Operation of Faith
