Here you will find the Poem A Rondeau to Ethel of poet Austin Henry Dobson
?IN teacup-times?! The style of dress Would suit your beauty, I confess; BELINDA-like, the patch you ?d wear; I picture you with powdered hair,? You ?d make a charming Shepherdess! And I?no doubt?could well express SIR PLUME?S complete conceitedness,? Could poise a clouded cane with care ?In teacup-times?! The parts would fit precisely?yes: We should achieve a huge success! You should disdain, and I despair, With quite the true Augustan air; But ? could I love you more, or less,? ?In teacup-times??
