    Well, every detail of a real woman is contemplated deeply and revealed at its deserving gravity and truth. It is not a woman in dimension different, a woman as woman has always been, but often failed to understand by both men and women alike! . yes, a phenomenal version of her by Maya's angelic pen. God bless her in the after, amen. (Report) Reply

    Jeez, this is the best poem ever? It's just about a woman being really full of herself, and didn't find the descriptions very emotive or interesting either, just repetitive. (Report) Reply

    I really liked, enjoyed the beautiful poem and the subject in particular and its word power and peculiarities of the great poet who is no more. It is beautiful to hear, happy to learn, and understand and I think this is wonderful with so much imaginations and facts as well.The poem is a truth of woman character in particular and it is having such a universal importance and poetic importance that I think with best of emotions to have an opportunity to read it.
