ANJALI SINHA

** Woman **

A woman
Yes a woman.
Creation’s croon
Nay, the God’s boon
Enigma or mystery
Enchanting history

Her birth precedes
the birth of dawn,
A dawn of glory
The glory of the morn
In the sky forlorn.
she’s like lucent dew from sky
Or like fairies’ intoxicating sighs,
she’s manna from the heaven
or treasures of seas seven
A song of offering
At the altar of gods.

She’s graceful, .
She’s sweet,
and void of pride.
Might be her faults
lie beneath her vaults,
For this, its not her fault,
If to her share,
some errors she doth make,
then will lay bare
her amendments to rake

For her parents
a doting daughter,
For her husband
a loving wife,
Not a slave
before that lord,
but a friend,
who wont walk
on a lonesome road,
nor walk
in for fear and dread.
But having once walked,
will always hold head high,
Never will she fail
unless trampled on her tail.

Woman
Yes a woman,
Shes that nymph
where anxious cares
her pensive thoughts oppressed.
Shes a lover where
secret passions hide in her breast.
Shes a mother, a daughter
a scornful virgin,
whose charms if missed,
where no ardent lover
is robbed of his bliss.
No matter how small,
these qualities
shes endowed with,
How great
How great
A wonder she is

Isn’t she?

    It takes a great woman to truly write about the greatness of a woman. Well done Anjali!

    A wonderful dedication to womankind. Indeed, where would we all be if not for them. The world would perhaps be a better place had there not been any men around! ! !

    A Perfect Ten sculpt of Woman.
    But in lexicon we find alphabetical gender apartheid bias e.g. man comes before woman [and in Bengali Purusha and Mahila]. LOL
    And in the very word woman has a lingering vestige of ‘man’.
    Ten.

    She is your loving wife, who is always interested in your welfare, backs you fiercely if need be, She is your darling daughter, who keeps saying, my Dad is great, She is your mother, who finds happiness in your success, She is so much and much more. Anjali you rock.

    Anju, you express the eternal piece of woman's of life.It's The Bible of their lives in this vale of tears.Just like William Wordsworth, You also hear the woman's cry-a cry to liberate themselves from the present order- now you remember me Shelley.

    a good ode to womanhood.some parts were amazingly constructed to give the imagery of truly how giving and warm a woman is supposed to be...

    Yes! and so beautiful she is..she is the key stone that holds this crazy world together......If man was a flower... she is the sun.. for not WOMAN
    He would surely wither and fade....and all would be for naught.

    awesome........the flow the meaning and the message. keep it up.........see the small piece I wrote

    I create, nurture and feed
    The human race and its creed
    I dream I soar,
    The woman in me
    Wants more …wants more…
