Jonathan Swift: Poems

What is the title of the poem in which Swift talks about a seemingly beautiful public fountain at dawn but is really describing the end of a prostitute's night?

I read a poem a long time ago by Swift about a prostitute at a public fountain and her process of undressing and taking off her make-up once she got home. It was a hilarious satire that starts out like a lovely ode to the dawn but ends with ugly details.
