Woman



~~~

To the pretty girls, running slow

Who let us steal playground kisses

To smiling eyes that seem to know

How to encourage loving wishes

~~~

To the maidens, fair and lovely

Who easy win our needy hearts

To the Gods realmed above me

Who perfected the gendered art

~~~

To your parents who raised you well

Who gave you your inner strength

To those who find their love in life

Regardless of the gifted length

~~~

To every painted flirtatious eye

Who can make a man fall

To all the women in our world

Who bring beauty to it all

~~~

I offer only a humble thanks

That you are exactly who you are

For an imagined world without you

Is a night sky without the stars

~~~
