It Takes a Woman/ the Sunday Whirl —Poets United. Poets Pantry

It Takes a Woman

It takes a woman to tell her story
Be she saint or sinner

It takes a woman to make a home
He gives her riches or poverty

It takes a woman to create a life on earth
Either crazy or sane

It takes a woman to protect against winter’s cold
On the frozen dry mesa

It takes a woman, when offered rope
To hang herself, her breath rasping in her throat

It takes a woman to clear the haze
Each day folded into another
Like the fresh sheets folded in the cupboard

It takes a woman to warm the frozen feet of the kitten
When he comes in from the cold

Christmas Comes Slowly/dVerse/early

Christmas Comes Slowly I avoid what comes too early Instead will wait for Christmas A long wait indeed But send my love for now ...
