Woman is a pearl
And not a churl
Will never produce a burl
in a purl.
If you hurl anything at her you will swirl
And will be in turmoil.
In the world of womanhood when she shifts her things from here
And there and reorganises herself,
Teach us how to become a sculptor or an anointer
And not an abductor or a polluter.
Their elegance, their neatness drives the heart of many to flutter,
Which helps them to become an executor or collocutor.
When annoyed, spends time in cloister,
They are never a destructor or a presecutor,
But discharges everything into the earth by
Acting as a lightning conductor.
Always in a jocund mode and simplicity as beautiful as a covey,
But they are at their best when they find anyone laze like gecko,
Sets him/her right by their dejure dekko.
When young they are known as colleen
Blessed with many femininity attributes which are concatenated,
Helps them not only to perambulate a neonate,
But to hypenate and encapsulate,
Which in turns helps them to conciliate and to illuminate,
And not to lacerate or impersonate.
Don’t dither to condemn and always ready
to condole and condone,
And when they propone in an intone it always outshone,
Hence easily occupies a throne.
Since they don’t have to grizzle or groan,
Helps them to be in an exuberant mode for an aeon.
Close to Udaipur there are dunes,
And so we may find many enjoying there with prune and macaroon,
And it will be a boon if it is in a full moon.
Brilliant to resile and to endure,
And hence when they engender there is no enervation,
Keeps them always in a state of jubilation.
Their techniques to enrobe a layette and ensconce from a child,
Fascinates us all and none goes wild or rile,
But all smile,
And this proves that feminism is always in
The midst of lily-of-the-nile.
When young they are also known as fille,
They teach us in the following way
Time is slowly creeping away,
Prepare just now for the things you want to display.
If you delay,
You will panic all the way and bray to drag a dray
And finally fail to purvey.
Hence you will be in disarray and become upset with your FAY.
Also called missy
Keeps always busy,
Help others to improve their celerity and alacrity
Which in turn makes them neither sissy nor sleazy
Soon becomes an aeria
Suddenly the place becomes crowded like Bavaria.
Will never be a scarier or a pariah
But always remain faria.
