A Virtuous Woman


As a pretty little child
She is the apple of her parents' eyes
As a grown up lovely girl styled
To her husband then she ties.

Her heart is one with her spouse
She loves and cares for him swell
And ne'er entertains any grouse
For in his entity she does dwell.

She is the nucleus of the house
And the mother of their children
She is the better-half of her spouse
And makes lives for others a heaven.

To her children loving
She is the role model
She is the mother caring
Who is more than vital.

She renders her helping hand
In her children's studies and home-work
And when in school they land
They feel secure and have no jerk.

She cooks and serves with glee
Taking care of their health
And caters to their taste with spree
Who are their very wealth.

When bound in sickness
Her soothing touch is a balm
She readies for fitness
With her personality calm.

She instills qualities sterling
Of rectitude and nobility
Imbues them with virtues amazing
Moulding into a laudable personality.

She hones their inherent skills
To make them flower
And accords them drills
For glory and laurels shower.


On hand with her education
She is also a money-maker
To the family's income an addition
Along being a home- maker.

The children are devoid of want
All their aspirations are fulfilled
They get what so ever they want
And are with happiness thrilled.

She brings them up to be fair
And be good honest citizens
She works for their welfare
To raise them in life's ladder as veterans.

She propagates our culture
And develops them in her progeny
She disciplines them to venture
And get along with out monotony.

She is the pivot
Around her the family swirls
She is the allaying spirit
Behind the family's twirls.

She has good traits
Of love and affection
None she ever hates
But has pools of compassion.

She has immense maturity
Is confident and out going
To the family she is the security
And is ever hard working.

When situations crop up
To test her patience
She does not slump
But has enough tolerance.

She holds no animosity
Against even a foe
Because of her religiosity
She never stoops low.

In her own manner captivating
She shows tenderness and regard
To the extended family tying
She attaches herself on her own accord.

In her relationship with others
She ever holds sincerity
With her benevolence she tenders
Help with all her humility.

To those in grief and sorrow
She extends her full sympathy
Her soft heart does follow
And stands by them in empathy.

She is smart, gentle and caring
She is disciplined in her chores
She is honest and ne'er wavering
In life she ardently soars.

When the grown up children
Are married and off they turn
She baby- sits their children
With love, care and concern.

The family is proud of her
She radiates warmth and gladness
All are there, this to concur
That her very presence is happiness.

    When you build a great building the first stone laid is the foundation stone. When a great family thrives it is because a foundation stone way laid and everyday another one is added making monuments pleasing to God. (Report) Reply

    When a lady rises to this stature, she becomes a true daughter, wife and MOTHER! ! Let each woman aspire to be a woman of this rank! Then no doubt every house would become a paradise! Such lofty visions about womanhood,
    Chandra! Indeed a laudable work! ! (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
