An Irish epigram, author unknown
Cáintear na fileadha
's ni hiad do bhionn cionntach;
Ni fachtar as na soighthighe
acht an Ián do bhios ionnta.
Men mock the poet for his want of wit,
Yet not the poet's is the fault of it;
Out of a little vessel you'll not gain
More than a little vessel can contain.
