Good people all, with one accord, Lament for Madam Blaize, Who never wanted a good word--

[Illustration (drawing, pic05trans.gif)]

_From those_

[Illustration (drawing, pic06trans.gif)]

_who spoke her praise._

[Illustration (painting, pic07.jpg)]

[Illustration (drawing, pic08trans.gif)]

The needy seldom pass'd her door, And always found her kind; She freely lent to all the poor--

[Illustration (drawing, pic09trans.gif)]

_Who left_

[Illustration (drawing, pic10trans.gif)]

_a pledge behind._

[Illustration (painting, pic11.jpg)]

[Illustration (drawing, pic12trans.gif)]

She strove the neighbourhood to please With manners wondrous winning;

[Illustration (drawing, pic13trans.gif)]

And never follow'd wicked ways--

[Illustration (drawing, pic14trans.gif)]

_Unless when she was sinning._

[Illustration (drawing, pic15trans.gif)]

At church, in silks and satins new, With hoop of monstrous size, She never slumber'd in her pew--

[Illustration (painting, pic16.jpg)]

[Illustration (drawing, pic17trans.gif)]

_But when she shut her eyes._
