Woman - Flowing Water

Woman is flowing water
My dear, flowing water
Is pious like that of Ganges
And Jamunetry etc.

Woman is life-giver
And also life-taker
Exploit not a woman
It is dangerous.

Understand the inner
Meaning of Chankya
Never put your faith
In a woman or a politician.

Not always true, women
In general should not be trusted
Not to speak about the woman
Who is loitering here and there.

Not always true, beautiful young women
Invoke the dormant lusty desires
Of a man and so it is said
Protect a woman, give her proper protection.

Woman can solve any problem
Woman can do wonders, my dear
Woman is sister, woman is mother
Woman is the best creator.

Woman is the pious flowing water
Woman has kept nectar
If you are pure and in Truth
I am sure woman is better.

And if you are a demon
And a lusty person, be sure
It is a woman who is there
To enable you to reach the end.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
