Delight In Disorder by Robert Herrick

A sweet disorder in the dress 
Kindles in clothes a wantonness:– 
A lawn about the shoulders thrown 
Into a fine distractión,– 
An erring lace, which here and there 
Enthrals the crimson stomacher,– 
A cuff neglectful, and thereby 
Ribbands to flow confusedly,– 
A winning wave, deserving note, 
In the tempestuous petticoat,– 
A careless shoe-string, in whose tie 
I see a wild civility,– 
Do more bewitch me, than when art 
Is too precise in every part.
