  A RONDELAY  

Man is for woman made,
    And woman made for man:
As the spur is for the jade,
As the scabbard for the blade,
    As for liquor is the can,
So man's for woman made,
    And woman made for man.

As the sceptre to be sway'd,
As to night the serenade,
    As for pudding is the pan,
    As to cool us is the fan,
So man's for woman made,
    And woman made for man.

Be she widow, wife, or maid,
Be she wanton, be she staid,
Be she well or ill array'd,
So man's for woman made,
    And woman made for man.

            Peter A. Motteux.
