The dress they wore in the Golden Age
Would seem in the Age of Gold.

Where peace and hospitality might reign.

But I do mean to say, I have heard her declare,
When at the same moment she had on a dress
Which cost five hundred dollars, and not a cent less,
And jewelry worth tem times more, I should guess,
That he had not a thing in the wide world to wear!
