The small dogs look at the big dogs;
They observe unwieldy dimensions
And curious imperfections of odor.
Here is the formal male group:
The young men look upon their seniors,
They consider the elderly mind
And observe its inexplicable correlations.

Said Tsin-Tsu:
It is only in small dogs and the young
That we find minute observation

    Said Tsin-Tsu:
    It is only in small dogs and the young
    That we find minute observation. The poet is speaking of The Seeing Eye in youth or knowledge.
