International Women's Day,2012


There are some things women should do,
As men simply cannot;
There are things that women can do,
But not as well as men.

There are some things women shouldn't do,
For they are harmful, sin;
There are many just women do,
Much better than most men.

Empow'r women and uplift them,
And make their plight better;
This half of human populace
If better, world's better.

Let poverty not strike women;
Remove their hunger pangs;
Give them all equal rights like men,
Save them from awful gangs.

Women are teachers naturally
For every child that's born;
They nurse their babies and protect,
Till dusk, from every dawn.

Women have beauty and contours
And for men, fit partners;
Women need love and care like all:
They aren't bought from a stall!

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
