  • Our youth, of labor patient, earn their bread; Hardly they work, with frugal diet fed.
  • …had rode, And his first slumber had refresh’d the godThe time when early housewives leave the bed; When living embers on the hearth they spread, Supply the lamp, and call the maids to riseWith yawning mouths, and with half-open’d eyes, They ply the distaff by the winking light, And to their daily labor add the night: Thus frugally they earn their children’s bread, And uncorrupted keep the nuptial bedNot less concern’d, nor at a later hour, Rose from his downy couch the forging pow’r.
