ONE OF TIME’S CHANGES.
Some things have chang’d from what they were
When all the fairest of the fair;
Whom Fame has rank’d among the ‘beauties;’
Were skillful in domestic duties.
 
Our modern Misses scarce believe
That ladies us’d to spin and weave;
Or, that gay Princesses, of yore,
Wrought the righ garments, Princes wore.
 
Since Fashion has with Folly met,
The stars of Industry have set—
Pleasure and Profit have disbanded,
And Labor, like grim Want, is branded.
 
’Tis strange as foolish, but ’tis got so
Who are not idle, would be thought so;
And ladies too, have grown so common,
No wonder if they plunder Mammon!
 
Now who, beneath proud Fashion’s peal,
Will dare draw music from the wheel,
Or regulate the kitchen, when
