On The Lady Manchester

Poem by Joseph Addison

While haughty Gallia's dames, that pread
O'er their pale cheeks, an artful red,
Beheld this beauteous stranger there
In native charms, divinely fair;
Confusion in their looks they show'd;
And with unborrow'd blushes glow'd.

    'Confusion in their looks they showed
    And with unborrowed blushes glowed
    Uniqueness of natural beauty reiterated. Thanks for sharing it here.(Report)Reply
