"Fashion" is a poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) that went unpublished in his lifetime.  The text is not available on The Eldritch Dark, so here's the complete poem:

Though my love display her limits,
          Though the longer dresses hide her
Knees from my enraptured gaze--
          I will never check nor chide her:

Though she wear them short and shorter
          There is always more to show;
And the dress that drapes her shoe tops,
          Leaves a vaster lot to know.

There's not much to say about this one - certainly a minor item from CAS' poetic corpus, and no great surprise that he chose not to publish this one.
