Still to be Neat
By by Ben Johnson
Still to be neat,
still to be dressed,
As you were going to a feast;
Still to be powdered, still perfumed:

All is not sweet, all is not sound.
Give me a look, give me a face
That makes simplicity a grace;
Robes losely flowing, hair as free:
Such sweet neglect more taketh me
Than all the adulteries of art;
They strike mine eyes but not my heart.
