A Woman's Might


Woman
The peace of the world
is knit in her garment
She is but the thirst
of the afflicted

Tender, loving and caring
She bears the burden
of her house on the
fountain of her grace

Generation raise and sustain
upon her breast
Her back comforts the sleeping child
Her fire never goes out
at night or her laughter at day

Her milk of kindness flows
thru even lands into
the desert of the needy

She is respected at the market place
Loved by the church
Blessed in moonlight plays
with lullaby of children

Singing and dancing into
the wee of night
Woman
She is perfection for imperfect man

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
