Her berth was of the wombe of morning dew,And her conception of the joyous Prime.
His death which happened in his berth, At forty-odd befell: They went and told the sexton, and The sexton tolled the bell.thomas hood
There are slave-drivers quietly whipped underground, There bookbinders, done up in boards, are fast bound, There card-players wait till the last trump be played, There all the choice spirits get finally laid, There the babe that's unborn is supplied with a berth, There men without legs get their six feet of earth, There lawyers repose, each wrapped up in his case, There seekers of office are sure of a place, There defendant and plaintiff get equally cast, There shoemakers quietly stick to the last.james russell lowell
Her berth was of the wombe of morning dew And her conception of the joyous prime.Edmund Spenser
Till taught by pain, Men really know not what good water's worth; If you had been in Turkey or in Spain, Or with a famish'd boat's-crew had your berth, Or in the desert heard the camel's bell, You'd wish yourself where Truth is in a well.lord byron
