Counseil to a Bachelor
By Marianne Moore
 
From “Pouters and Fantails”

Elizabethan Trencher Motto—Bodleian Library: [with title and modification of second line]

IF thou bee younge, then marie not yett;
If thou bee olde, then no wyfe gett;
For younge mens’ wyves will not bee taught,
And olde mens’ wyves bee good for naught.
