CATHERINE MARIE FANSHAWE
English author and verse writer
(1765 - 1834)

Where can a frail man hide him? In what arms shall a short life enjoy a little rest?
      - [Rest]

'Twas whispered in Heaven, 'twas muttered in hell
  And echo caught faintly the sound as it fell.
    On the confines of earth 'twas permitted to rest,
      And the depths of the ocean its presence confessed.
      - Enigma (The letter H) [Heaven]

Such pains, such pleasures now alike are o'er,
  And beaus and etiquette shall soon exist no more
    At their speed behold advancing
      Modern men and women dancing;
        Step and dress alike express
          Above, below from heel to toe,
            Male and female awkwardness.
              Without a hoop, without a ruffle,
                One eternal jig and shuffle,
                  Where's the air and where's the gait?
                    Where's the feather in the hat?
                      Where the frizzed toupee? and where
                        Oh! where's the powder for the hair?
      - The Abrogation of the Birth-Night Ball
        [Dancing]
