Wedlock a poem by Benjamin Franklin

Franklin Benjamin - Poem



Wedlock
Benjamin Franklin

Wedlock, as old men note, hath likened been, 
Unto a public crowd or common rout;
Where those that are without would fain get in,
And those that are within, would fain get out.
Grief often treads upon the heels of pleasure,
Marry'd in haste, we oft repent at leisure;
Some by experience find these words missplaced,
Marry'd at leisure, they repent in haste.

Benjamin Franklin
