A Good Wife
Who can find a really good wife?
For spending the rest of your life;
Strong character and attitude,
Never uncouth or being rude.
She is worth more than the crown jewels,
And her eyes are like soothing pools;
With a husband that puts his trust,
No other woman would he lust.
He trusts her with his complete heart,
Not wanting from her to depart;
For him she doing as she should,
Never lacking anything good.
She always helps him never harms,
And comforts him within her arms;
Because her compassion is bold,
Always warm never to be cold.
No one ever calls her a fool,
As she seeks out linen and wool;
And working with her willing hands,
To clothe her kin as it demands.
She will be like a merchant boat,
Good and services to devote;
Bringing her food from far away,
To nourish family each day.
She wakes up as it is still dark,
To feed kin before they embark;
Making sure they have enough to eat,
And they leave with shoes on their feet.
Deceptive charm beauty will fade,
But the woman is not afraid;
As she remains in one accord,
Since she has the fear of the Lord.
