Still to be neat, still to be drest,
As you were going to a feast,
Still to be powder'd, all perfum'd.

Though art's hid causes are not found,
All is not sweet, all is not sound.

So for thy spirit did devise
Its Maker seemly garniture,
Of its own essence parcel pure.--

And reticent demureness,
And love encinctured with reserve;

Should show the soul's habiliments.
Therefore I say,--Thou'rt fair even so,
But better Fair I use to know.

He shows his clothes! alas! he shows himself.
O that they knew, these overdrest self-lovers,
What hides the body oft the mind discovers.
