Virtuous Woman, Poem

My first collection of published poetry:

A Poem Dedicated to my Mother in Law:


Virtuous Woman:

Family praise her

And all who meet her.

She smiles with eyes,

Cries with her soul.

The strength of her heart

Of a lioness.

She works hard

With her hands,

The first to rise

Last to rest.

She pours hot coffee

Prepares all meals,

A productive wife

Capable and fit.

Good character

Upholds her high,

She is quick to aid

And slow to anger.

Her kindness spreads

Wherever she goes,

She is the peacekeeper.

Honours her spouse

Corrects her children,

Because she loves them.

A true woman of all times;

Such beauty never fades.

Solomon asked who can find a virtuous woman, and apparently you have, and so have I, since my own mother displays these attributes. Great shout out to an obviously precious woman, with a price far above rubies.

Thanks for stopping by,consider yourself blessed for having such a precious mother, perhaps I would be right by saying that she has made you into a fine man!Im getting to know my mother later in life, since our reunion, 2004:)))

Beautiful! I remember the Proverbs 31 Woman in your poem Pearl. ;) It's actually my prayer, maybe I'm long way to go.

Thankyou for your lovely comment His Princesz, may both our prayers be fulfilled, however more important lets enjoy who we are today and rejoice when we get there, slowly but surely in God! :)

I love it! I love the line "cries with her soul". This gives a great summery of the strength of woman and good mothers. It even made me feel like a stronger mother/woman just by reading it. Thank you for sharing! So sweet you see you mother in law in such a good way.

Hi Eric nice to see you again, you are absolutely right we do need more women like this. Of course the nature of woman is a human being same as man, however women with these attributes can transform their families, community & ultimately a nation. (I believe this)
