ON SEEING MISS FONTENELLE IN A FAVOURITE CHARACTER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Sweet naivete of feature
Last Line: Then indeed thou'd'st act a part.
Subject(s): Actors & Actresses; Actresses


Sweet naivete of feature,
Simple, wild, enchanting elf,
Not to thee, but thanks to Nature,
Thou art acting but thyself.

Wert thou awkward, stiff, affected,
Spurning Nature, torturing art;
Loves and Graces all rejected,
Then indeed thou'd'st act a part.
