Chorus was published in Millay's poetry collection, Second April (1921).
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Czardas Dancers, 1908

     Give away her gowns,
     Give away her shoes;
     She has no more use
     For her fragrant gowns;
     Take them all down,
     Blue, green, blue,
     Lilac, pink, blue,
     From their padded hangers;
     She will dance no more
     In her narrow shoes;
     Sweep her narrow shoes
     From the closet floor.
