Title: Who looks may leap
Composer: William Byrd
Original text and translations
Who looks may leap and save his shins from knocks,
Who tries may trust, else flatt'ring friends shall find,
He saves the Steed that keeps him under locks,
Who speaks with heed may boldly speak his mind,
But he whose tongue before his wit doth run,
Often speaks too soon, and grieves when he hath done.
