The beggar is taxed for a corner to die in,
The priest hath his fee who comes and shrives us,

At the devil's booth are all things sold,
Each ounce of dross costs its ounce of gold;
For a cap and bells our lives we pay.

'Tis heaven alone that is given away,
'Tis only God may be had for the asking,
No price is set on the lavish summer;
June may be had by the poorest comer.
~ James Russell Lowell, The Vision of Sir Launfal, 1848.
