The little painted angels flit, See, down the narrow staircase, where The pink legs flicker over it ! Blonde, and bewigged, and winged with gold, The shining creatures of the air Troop sadly, shivering with cold. The gusty gaslight shoots a thin Sharp finger over cheeks and nose, Rouged to the colour of the rose. All wigs and paint, they hurry in : Then, bid their radiant moment be The footlights' immortality !Condition is Very Good.
