    There was no great disparity of years,
    Though much in temper; but they never clash'd,
    They moved like stars united in their spheres,
    Or like the Rhone by Leman's waters wash'd,
    Where mingled and yet separate appears
    The river from the lake, all bluely dash'd
    Through the serene and placid glassy deep,
    Which fain would lull its river-child to sleep.

Cursed be the man, the poorest wretch in life,
The crouching vassal, to the tyrant wife,
Who has no will but by her high permission;
Who has not sixpence but in her possession;
Who must to her his dear friend's secret tell;
Who dreads a curtain lecture worse than hell.
Were such the wife had fallen to my part,
I'd break her spirit or I'd break her heart.
