Davison's Poetical Rhapsody
MY Love in her attire doth show her wit, 
It doth so well become her; 
For every season she hath dressings fit, 
  For Winter, Spring, and Summer. 
    No beauty she doth miss         5
      When all her robes are on: 
    But Beauty's self she is 
      When all her robes are gone.
