Friendlight Friday



What Makes A WomanBy Albert N. Raub, Normal Fifth Reader, 1878
Not costly dress nor queenly air;
Not jeweled hand, complexion fair;
Not graceful form nor lofty tread,
Nor paint, nor curls, nor splendid head:
Not pearly teeth nor sparkling eyes,
Not voice that nightingale outvies;
Not breath as sweet as eglantine,
Not gaudy gems nor fabrics fine;
Not all the stores of fashion’s mart,
Not yet the blandishments of art;
Not one, nor all of these combined,
Can make one woman true, refined.
