An Epitome Of Dignity


An epitome of dignity,
An african woman,
A virtous woman,
She has shown her self to be,

She fears God,
And teaches her children right,
She worketh willing,
That her children die not for lack,

She has girded her loins,
With strenght and hardwork,
That her childrenmight be also known,
An african woman,
A virtous woman,
My mother.

Dedicated to Deborah Benson and Priscillia Dagogo george

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
