The Perfect Woman

The Perfect Woman

She’d be fair to look upon, at your discretion of course
Grace would be her crowning glory, along with a tender heart
Kindness would rule her deeds when meeting others needs
Gentleness would rule her tongue, even when miss-pleased  
She’d rule her domain with cleanliness, an attribute shared in deed
Temperance I’d think a must, along with the ability to trust
She’d be partner, not slave, surely a two-sided attribute worn
You’d hope of course she’d be a good cook, aprons worn by two
Anger would be short to rise; even yours should abide this rule

A companion, a lover, a friend, who’s sharing wouldn’t smother
She’d be the one, you’d be most proud, 
to present to your father and mother

    hmmm, I would flunk out on the clean house part. WEll, I keep it fairly clean but not spic and span , that is for sure! This is really nice. In a way, it is describing the perfect woman of MY poem too! Best of luck in the contest. I have no idea how the judge will decide among all the fine entries.

    Deb, this is a really great poem for the contest. It would be very hard, I think for every woman to live up to all these virtues.We all strive to do what we can. That's all anyone can ask. Well done. Pam.x

    Very nice description of the perfect woman. I can see that a lot of it comes from the Bible, which is really awesome. In all it is a beautiful poem.

    The perfect woman's made of love. To you, she puts no one above. This reads like the poem about love. How love is kind and love is patient and so on. Perfection unatainable. :/ :)
