The Miller's Tale ( Pushkin Sonnet )

Young housewivesódark thrills inspire them;
but, when pressed for action doth feign    
virtue against a parish man, † † †
while bedding a more nobler Cane. † † †
Ye husbands! heed this chronicle! † † †  
When deceit doth snake full circle † † †  
seeking to utterly deceive, † † †
truth can be too hard to believe. † † †  
The poor husband, an innocent, † † †
reputable among town folk, † † †  
unwittingly becomes a joke † † †
in the sinner's moral dissent! † † †
The husband prays for a godsend; † † †
The parishioner! He's a friend. † † †
