Woman of Substance

She’s a woman of substance

She knows her own mind

She’s solid, well rounded

She’s gracious and kind

She’s not flimsy

Nor fragile

Nor vapid

Nor sappy

She’s balanced and thoughtful

Know how to be happy

She speaks with conviction

Articulates her views

She’s incisive and ponders

The import of news

She’s not hollow

Nor shallow

Nor vacuous

Nor wispy

Not dramatically breathless

And impossibly lispy

She speaks from her knowledge

Feels with her heart

Champions her causes

Knows conversation’s an art

She’s a woman of substance

There’s fire in her eyes

She’s independent, individual

Her spirit is wise.



Retired Adelaide based professional. Lived here most of my life. I have been a teacher of French, English and German since 1974 and value the capacity of the classroom, wherever that might be, to write on the lives of others.
