“O fairest of creation, last and best
of all God's works, creature in whom excell'd
Whatever can to sight or thought be form'd,
Holy, divine, good, amiable or sweet.” -Milton.
"Lords of the world, as ye are proudly called,
By your own sex applauded and extolled
For every good—is woman's lovely frame
A gewless casket-fitted but to claim
The eye's devotion? Perish such a thought,
HERE, learn her worth, and prize her as ye ought;
Though she permits your rougher hand to bear
The rod of power-your loftier brow to wear
'Tise glittering badge of sovereignty-she still
Directs, unseen, the sceptre at her will.
Wisdom may act, determine, or approve,
Still the prime mover is, and must be, Love."-Woodroorth.
