Here you will find the Poem To a Lady of poet Mary Barber

To a Lady

WELL you Sincerity display,
 A virtue wond'rous rare ! 
Nor value, tho' the world should say, 
 You're rude, so you're sincere.
To be sincere, then, give me leave ; 
 And I will frankly own, 
Since you but this one virtue have, 
'Twere better you had none.
