Her best and worst are both revealed at once.

Her wrap dress did not cover her large knees
Swollen with arthritis and   long prayers.
And yet she wears this dress the  men to please.
As it reveals her  bosom  beauteous , fair.

The  camel colour suited ill her face.
But the dress was in the sale for half its price
She would not buy a top sky blue with lace,
As with   the  gods of fortune she  would  dice.

A longer length would be a better choice
But she has no tall mirror in  her home
And she does not believe her clothes have voice
As round the parties hunting men she roams

Her best and worst are both revealed at once.
Let  none who hunt  look at  this dame askance
