A Woman's Glory
written by William Henry Davies
From "Songs of Joy", 1911 Link to further information




A woman's glory is not hair,
It is her voice so soft and sweet;
Her hair can be what'er she wills,
Her voice will stand no counterfeit;
So let her sing, and laugh in tones
Of water caught by rocks and stones.

When woman works from home or drinks,
And has no time or love to charm
Her young with song between their meals,
The world and they must suffer harm:
They'll stone dumb creatures, and they'll yell
Around the blind like imps from hell.
