Women of the World (poem)

We are the women

who run with wolves

We are the wild women

of the world

We are the women

who wipe wet bottoms

We are the mothers

of the world

We are the women

who watch and wait

We are the wives

of the world

We are the women

who weep over wounds

We are the healers

of the world

We are the women

who winnow and weave

We are the workers

of the world

We are the women

watchful and wary

We are the guardians

of the world

We are the women

weary of war

We are the widows

of the world

We are the whimsical

wanton wild women

We are the women

of the world
