An Epitome Of Dignity - Poem by Ingibo Benson

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
