Alexander Pope

Here you will find the Poem On a certain Lady at Court of poet Alexander Pope

On a certain Lady at Court

I know the thing that's most uncommon;
 (Envy be silent and attend!)
I know a Reasonable Woman,
 Handsome and witty, yet a Friend.

Not warp'd by Passion, aw'd by Rumour,
 Not grave thro' Pride, or gay thro' Folly,
An equal Mixture of good Humour,
 And sensible soft Melancholy.

`Has she no Faults then (Envy says) Sir?'
 Yes she has one, I must aver:
When all the World comspires to praise her,
 The Woman's deaf, and does not hear.
