    Perfect! This poem must have been as fun to compose as it is to read. I enjoy the various ways in which Carroll describes the five girls' ages at the start of each stanza. I've been thinking a lot about the stages of life that a female passes through, because now I'm entering Passe. Time to step aside and make room for the new generation of dashing, showy, and dressy ladies. Such is the rhythm of Life. Bittersweet, indeed. (Report) Reply

    One of my favourite writers. This has humour and encourages a moment of pity in the middle A fun clever piece although I must say not one of my favourites of his. Yet as ever such a comfortable flow. Tyvm Karen (Report) Reply

    Some families of women of that era equate husband material based on how wealthy the man or his family was. With such standards, the young women may find it hard to marry if they want t to marry for love and not for money. (Report) Reply

    These are five girls who will never have sex; usual in those days in middle class houses. Women were marriage fodder or on the shelf all their lives. (Report) Reply
