    So, we’ll go no more a-roving
    So late into the night,
    Though the heart be still as loving,
    And the moon be still as bright.

    And the soul wears out the breast.
    And the heart must pause to breathe
    And love itself have rest.

    The real sufferings of their she condition?
    Man’s very sympathy with their estate

    But form good housekeepers, to breed a nation.
