Woman

To fulfil immortality in life
Is woman's truth
Whose sole deed is
To disclose us to ourselves,
To whom next to Almighty
All owe their life
And who makes it worth having,


Although in the veil of desire
Is but lust made beauty,
Nature's agreeable blunders
In the magnifying glass of spite,
Yet no man is whole in himself
Save she's the rest of him.
What puzzles the mind,

Heart can understand only by love,
Awareness can touch only by virtue,
So rich in variety
Each perfect in its own line-
light of love alive, home in flesh,
Revered when alive,
Venerated when dead,

in her is the end of breeding.

    Enjoyed your poem, its imagery and cadence. The contrast between in and out could be stronger. However, I like it, good work.

    To fulfil immortality in life
    Is woman's truth...
    Yet no man is whole in himself
    Save she's the rest of him....
    Revered when alive,
    Venerated when dead, ...
    Beautiful expressions for woman

    You lavish well merited praise on women. We are all born from women, hence your mention of, 'immortality in life'.
    I think you are partly right when you say, 'no man is whole in himself/ Save she's the rest of him' Like her being the 'better half' of a marriage. I think some men, though, manage to define themselves independent of women. A most stimulating poem.

    in her is the end of breeding........so moving. Beautiful poem on woman. It is great tribute to all women. Thanks for sharing.

    finding and appreciating women's worth is a great thing in life because very rare people do that especially in the third world countries
