Stained from birth with Adam’s sinfull fact,
Thence I began to sin as soon as act;
A perverse will, a love to what’s forbid
A serpent’s sting in pleasing face lay hid:
A lying tonuge as soon as it could speak
And fifth commandment [to honour one's parents] do daily break.
—Anne Bradstreet around 1640
