in a woman's chamber--
burnt to a crisp.

and a woman in moonlight
 reading a letter.

 In the thicket's shade
a woman by herself
singing the rice-planting song.

But upon man as a whole, pass thy decisive decree.

Speak choosing your words, sir, like an old woman over a bushel of apples.

 (A case that’s still too common,)
Here lies man a woman ruled,
 The devil ruled the woman.

If her judgment loves not, woman already has judged.

And if she's not gone,
  She lives there still.

who photographed the view he saw
from the window of the room where he made love
and not the face of the woman he loved there.

There was a little woman, as I've been told,
Who was not very young, nor yet very old;
Now this little woman her living got
By selling codlins, hot, hot, hot!


by Carl Sandburg

 I AM making a Cartoon of a Woman.
She is the People.
She is the Great Dirty Mother.
And Many Children hang on her Apron, crawl at her Feet, snuggle at her Breasts.


by Emily Dickinson

For largest Womans Hearth I knew

 For largest Woman's Hearth I knew --
'Tis little I can do --
And yet the largest Woman's Heart
Could hold an Arrow -- too --
And so, instructed by my own,
I tenderer, turn Me to.


by Edward Lear

There was a Young Person of Smyrna,
Whose Grandmother threatened to burn her;
But she seized on the Cat, and said, "Granny, burn that!
You incongruous Old Woman of Smyrna!"

with one grand cafe in sun
with strong black coffee in very small cups.
One not necessarily very beautiful man or woman who loves you.
One fine day.

 Nature rarer uses Yellow
Than another Hue.
Saves she all of that for Sunsets Prodigal of Blue Spending Scarlet, like a Woman Yellow she affords Only scantly and selectly Like a Lover's Words.

That's All


There was an old woman sat spinning,
And that's the first beginning;
She had a calf,
And that's half;
She took it by the tail,
And threw it over the wall,
And that's all!


by Mother Goose

The Old Woman Of Harrow


There was an old woman of Harrow,
Who visited in a wheelbarrow;
   And her servant before,
   Knocked loud at each door,
To announce the old woman of Harrow.

Troths

 YELLOW dust on a bumble
bee's wing,
Grey lights in a woman's
asking eyes,
Red ruins in the changing
sunset embers:
I take you and pile high
the memories.
Death will break her claws on some I keep.


by Mother Goose

A Strange Old Woman


There was an old woman, and what do you think?
She lived upon nothing but victuals and drink;
Victuals and drink were the chief of her diet,
And yet this old woman could never be quiet.


by Mother Goose

There Was An Old Woman


There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth without any bread.
She whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

Light As The Linnet On My Way I Start

 LIGHT as the linnet on my way I start,
For all my pack I bear a chartered heart.
Forth on the world without a guide or chart, Content to know, through all man's varying fates, The eternal woman by the wayside waits.
