Earth Gets Its Price For...
Earth gets its price for what Earth gives us; The beggar is taxed for a corner to die in; The priest hath his fee who comes and shrives us; We bargain for the graves we lie in;; 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; Bubbles we buy with a whole soul's tasking; '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; - by
James Russell Lowell, The Vision of Sir Launfal, 1848
