The Truth Of Woman

Woman's faith, and woman's trust -
Write the characters in the dust;
Stamp them on the running stream,
Print them on the moon's pale beam,

Well, daggone it, it was one woman who did him wrong not the whole family of women. I thought better of Sir Walter than for him to generalize like that. Seeing the title and the name of the author I expected beautiful sweet words praising us up one side and down the other. I am betrayed. Actually I enjoyed this well-written poem anyway cuz I forgive the foolishnesses of men.

It doesn't paint a pretty picture of trust and honesty, does it? Of either in the relationship. But it certainly has a ring of truth. I really admire the poetry of this style and era.
