The perfect woman is both lovely and charming
She carries herself with a sophisticated air of feminine grace
Gentle and loving and brimful with laughter,
Yet showing at times a stubborn streak of strength
Not always having the answers, yet knowing her values
She is both capable and vulnerable.
Perhaps too trusting, placing a limitless faith in God and man,
Thus endearing her to those who treasure it and rescue her from her distresses.
Possessing a boundless sense of honour and virtue
She cleaves to what is good and eschews evil.
She tends to be peaceable and tries to please others,
Esteeming others as greater than herself -- and being rightly esteemed in return.
