SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: A Woman's Worth


They talk about a woman's sphere


As though it had a limit;


There's not a place in earth or Heaven


There's not a task to mankind given,


There's not a blessing or a woe,


There's not a whispered yes or no,


There's not a life, or death, or birth,


That has a feather's weight of worth --


Without a woman in it.

hahaha, K.! I never really cared for that song. It was just too in your face. I mean, if you see me, and can't figure out I'm a woman...

hmmm, I notice no guys commented on this. At least I think that to be true. So, to represent the other side, I'll thank you for at least including woe.


LOL

Ah, give credit where credit is due and it's true, this poem. I think its true for men too, but then I have this view that we're all in it together.

Keep the poems coming pv.
