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.

Dwellers in huts and in marble halls--
From Shepherdess up to Queen--
Cared little for bonnets, and less for shawls,
And nothing for crinoline.
