"O 'Melia, my dear, this does everything crown!

Who could have supposed I should meet you in Town?And whence such fair garments, such prosperi-ty?"--

"O didn't you know I'd been ruined?" said she.--"You left us in tatters, without shoes or socks,

Tired of digging potatoes, and spudding up docks;

And now you've gay bracelets and bright feathers three!"--

"Yes: that's how we dress when we're ruined," said she.--"At home in the barton you said 'thee' and 'thou,'

And 'thik oon,' and 'theäs oon,' and 't'other'; but now

Your talking quite fits 'ee for high compa-ny!"--

"Some polish is gained with one's ruin," said she.--"Your hands were like paws then, your face blue and bleak

But now I'm bewitched by your delicate cheek,

And your little gloves fit as on any la-dy!"--

"We never do work when we're ruined," said she.--"You used to call home-life a hag-ridden dream,

And you'd sigh, and you'd sock; but at present you seem

To know not of megrims or melancho-ly!"--

"True. One's pretty lively when ruined," said she."--I wish I had feathers, a fine sweeping gown,

And a delicate face, and could strut about Town!"--

"My dear--a raw country girl, such as you be,

Cannot quite expect that. You ain't ruined," said she.
