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
