the seven stages of a woman

November 29, 2008

at first she is a baby
with eyes deep blue
as soon as one sees her
she makes them coo

a lovely girl she becomes
when, to a child she grows
so pleasing to one's eye
and such manners she shows

now a beautiful school girl
such a lovely sight
looking upon a future
that seems so bright

then an amazing wife
so loving and so charming
such peace and gracefulness
and of her husband so caring

now a mother, so precious and valuable
by a strange oath to herself, is bound
her care, her love, her attention
is rarely, if ever found

now a thoughtful, pleasant grandmother
her treasured wisdom, she's offering
she is the peacefulness and the care
that everyone is always cherishing

then comes the second childhood
where all the love and care she gave
is willingly given back to her
now she's gone but her image is in every heart saved

this will certify that the above work is completely original

I like the content, cool idea. Try to keep the rhyme scheme in all of the stanzas, and see if you can get it to be more rhythmic. Try reading it aloud.
