Line 1-2 advised the unmarried man to look straight into the mirror and assure himself the time has come to start a family. Line 3-4 if you sieve not this moment and provide yourself a heir, you have cheated the world. Line 5-6, is there any wife that will see delight in locking her womb to deny the husband of becoming father? Line 7-8 or is there any man that will disregard posterity because he loves to live alone and die alone? Line 9-10 you are your mother’s mirror and through your offspring she can enjoy the memories of being a nursing mother. Line 11-12 and through your offspring, you will be privileged to see this time again while in old age. Line 13-14 as you continue to live, remember not to die single else your legacy dies with you.
