Nice one, beautifully put, John.
A woman is always lovely, a great poem, loved it.
Love it! Absolutely great!
Hahaha... This is very true... Thoughtful of you, friend.
Beautiful poem. Much better than the 6.2 rating given by the voters so far!
Expression of a woman's beauty is difficult to determine, but you have done admirably well with this beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn
Nicely said the reality of wrinkles and old age and their envy to the younger ones though I think in reality cannot be taken as a routine or regular impression persists in old women who have seen the world in different circumstances and sufferings and also glad moments of life. The poem is beautiful.
Outstanding tribute!
Sensitive and well expressed. The repetition of the first line makes it hang together well.
Your pretty good at reading a woman's mind. Showing the envy and needing the compassion. Very high emotions at both ends Good write
Very interesting poem on women.10 from me.
