Come, let us pity those who are better off than we are.
Come, my friend, and remember
      that the rich have
butlers and no friends,
And we have friends and no butlers.
Come, let us pity the married and the unmarried.

Dawn enters with little feet
      like a gilded Pavlova
And I am near my desire.
Nor has life in it aught better
Than this hour of clear coolness
      the hour of waking together.

by Ezra Pound

Garrets used to be cheap accomodation, fit for starving artists.
Formatted with brute force and  , for the PRE is ugly and the DD would be even worse. Thanks to anotherone for the tip.
