What is a woman?

The Chronicle - - Feedback -

WHAT is a woman but a joy A beau­ti­ful hu­man be­ing not a toy In her heart is love and af­fec­tion She em­braces the fam­ily with­out ex­cep­tion In times gone by she would be happy be­ing a housewife Now she craves a dif­fer­ent way of life But the love she gives to those she most cares about is not lost when she goes out For her du­ties are many­fold but she car­ries with her a heart of gold What is needed - her chil­dren just have to ask For a woman can multi-task For she is a mother, a nurse, a lover and a friend In her the fam­ily can de­pend Those lit­tle cuts and bruises she kisses them bet­ter, it seems to do the trick She nurses them back to health when they are sick She must not for­get her hus­band’s needs for she is a wife But she also leads an in­de­pen­dent life For she has a will of her own Not con­fined to the fam­ily home It was in the kitchen she once did slave Yelling to the kids “will you be­have” Now she can be a busi­ness­woman, a politi­cian, a pil­lar of the com­mu­nity She is equal to men in to­day’s so­ci­ety ALAN WATER­HOUSE, Seaton Delaval
