Rose left the spectacle before I came in
sometime before the ball lost Joy
Hope and Faith are staying on
as is Charity, their steadfast friend
and Patience waits with Grace,
Lily and Violet, standing by the wall
while Prudence contemplates the door
and Chastity, longing for a friend,
desperately clings to Virtue
