ANOTHER UPON HER.|
[MRS. PENELOPE WHEELER].
FIRST, for your shape, the curious cannot show
Any one part that's dissonant in you :
And 'gainst your chaste behaviour there's no plea,
Since you are known to be Penelope.
Thus fair and clean you are, although there be
A mighty strife 'twixt form and chastity.
