I know the thing that's most uncommon;

(Envy be silent and attend!)

I know a Reasonable Woman,

Handsome and witty, yet a Friend.



Not warp'd by Passion, aw'd by Rumour,

Not grave thro' Pride, or gay thro' Folly,

An equal Mixture of good Humour,

And sensible soft Melancholy.



`Has she no Faults then (Envy says) Sir?'

Yes she has one, I must aver:

When all the World comspires to praise her,

The Woman's deaf, and does not hear.

.: :.

Pope's poem "On a Certain Lady at Court" talks about a women who is perfect, pretty and 'witty'. Nevertheless, although everyone likes her, she seems to be deaf to praise. This last couplet may be a joke/satire; she is so perfect that her ONLY fault is that she does not accept praise !
It is important to also note that the 18th century author Alexander Pope is known for his satire poems.
