    So for thy spirit did devise
    Its Maker seemly garniture,
    Of its own essence parcel pure.--
    From grave simplicities a dress,
    And reticent demureness,
    And love encinctured with reserve;
    Which the woven vesture would subserve.
    For outward robes in their ostents
    Should show the soul's habiliments.
    Therefore I say,--Thou'rt fair even so,
    But better Fair I use to know.

A vest as admired Voltiger had on,
Which from this Island's foes his grandsire won,
Whose artful colour pass'd the Tyrian dye,
Obliged to triumph in this legacy.

Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
But not expressed in fancy; rich, not gaudy,
For the apparel oft proclaims the man,
And they in France of the best rank and station
Are of a most select and generous chief in that.

Dresses for breakfasts, and dinners, and balls.
Dresses to sit in, and stand in, and walk in;
Dresses to dance in, and flirt in, and talk in,
Dresses in which to do nothing at all;
Dresses for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall;
All of them different in color and shape.
Silk, muslin, and lace, velvet, satin, and crape,
Brocade and broadcloth, and other material,
Quite as expensive and much more ethereal.

And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that

was on him:
And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was
empty, there was no water in it.

John Lee is dead, that good old man,--
We ne'er shall see him more:
He used to wear an old drab coat
All buttoned down before.
