They talk about a womans sphere as though it had a limit; Theres not a place in Earth or Heaven, Theres not a task to mankind given, Theres not a blessing or a woe, Theres not a whispered yes or no, Theres not a life, or death, or birth, That has a feathers weight or worth Without a woman in it.
C. E. BOWMAN, The Sphere of Woman.Joseph M. Chapple, Heart Throbs in Prose and Verse, p. 343 (1905).
A similar version: They talk about a womans sphere As though it has a limit; Theres not a spot on sea or shore, In sanctum, office, shop or store, Without a woman in it.
