    In the School of Coquettes
    Madam Rose is a scholar,--
    O, they fish with all nets
    In the School of Coquettes!
    When her brooch she forgets

    In the School of Coquettes
    Madam Rose is a scholar!

slimy waters.

She grew to womanhood, and between whiles
Rejected several suitors, just to learn
