A Mien to move a Queen

A Mien to move a Queen
Half Child Half Heroine
An Orleans in the Eye
That puts its manner by
For humbler Company
When none are near
Even a Tear
Its frequent Visitor

A Bonnet like a Duke
And yet a Wren’s Peruke
Were not so shy
Of Goer by
And Hands so slight
They would elate a Sprite
With Merriment

A Voice that Alters Low
And on the Ear can go
Like Let of Snow
Or shift supreme
As tone of Realm
On Subjects Diadem

Too small to fear
Too distant to endear
And so Men Compromise
And just revere
