Boughs being pruned, birds preened, show more fair

" Boughs being pruned, birds preened, show more fair;
To grace them spires are shaped with corner squinches;┬░
Enriched posts are chamfer'd; everywhere┬░
He heightens worth who guardedly diminishes;
Diamonds are better cut; who pare, repair;
Is statuary rated by its inches?
Thus we shall profit, while gold coinage still
Is worth and current with a lessen'd mill."┬░
