What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

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 rises 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!
