From the Show: Nifties Of 1923 1923 (S)
I sing of a dress for my lady;
Orpheus gave me the theme.
I dreamed of a dress for my lady;
Morpheus lent me the dream.
The Muses have lent me the rhyme;
The fancy's completed, and I'm
Weaving a dress for my lady
Out of the fabric of dreams;
Fashioned of twilight,
Sewn with the shy light
Of stars and the moon's fragile beams;
Clasped with a girdle of dawning,
Rainbows to cover the seams,
Brightened with kisses,
Ladylove, this is
Your gown from my fabric of dreams!
My lady's cheek wears a dimple;
My lady's lips wear a smile.
No gown of gossamer simple
With them would quite be in style.
In gardens where fantasies bloom,
I sit at the sunset, my loom.
