Verse 5.—Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil.

Grace in thy gestures and thy looks is seen;
Gentle thy words, and courteous is thy mien,
Thou scorn'st to cast the proud indignant frown
On other's merits, or to boast thine own,
Oe'r anger, hatred, or revenge to brood,
Record the evil, and forget the good;
