- AH, wasteful woman, she who may
- On her sweet self set her own price,
- Knowing men cannot choose but pay,
- How she has cheapen'd paradise;
- How given for nought her priceless gift,
- How spoil'd the bread and spill'd the wine,
- Which, spent with due, respective thrift,
- Had made brutes men, and men divine.
- Coventry Patmore
