THE PULLET AND THE PEARL. Jean de La Fontaine

A Fowl, while scratching in the straw,
Finding a pearl without a flaw,
Gave it a lapidary of the day.
"It′s very fine, I must repeat;
And yet a single grain of wheat
Is very much more in my way."

A poor uneducated lad
A manuscript as heirloom had.
He took it to a bookseller one day:
"I know," said he, "it′s very rare;
But still, a guinea as my share
Is very much more in my way."
