A Rondeau To Ethel - Poem by Henry Austin Dobson
“IN teacup-times”! The style of dress
Would suit your beauty, I confess;
BELINDA-like, the patch you ’d wear;

And I—no doubt—could well express

You should disdain, and I despair,
With quite the true Augustan air;
But … could I love you more, or less,—
