A REQUEST TO THE GRACES

 Ponder my words, if so that any be
Known guilty here of incivility;
Let what is graceless, discomposed, and rude,
With sweetness, smoothness, softness be endued:
Teach it to blush, to curtsey, lisp, and show
Demure, but yet full of temptation, too.
Numbers ne'er tickle, or but lightly plea{e, Unless they have some wanton carriages:-- This if ye do, each piece will here be good And graceful made by your neat sisterhood.
