What Our Country Needs

What Our Country Needs

What does our Country need? Not armies standing

With sabres gleaming ready for the fight;

Not increased navies, skillful and commanding,

To Bound the waters with an iron might;

Not haughty men with glutted purses trying

To purchase souls, and keep the power of place;

Not jeweled dolls with one another vying

For palms of beauty, elegance and grace.

But we want women, strong of soul, yet lowly

With that rare meekness, born of gentleness;

Women whose lives are pure and clean and holy,

The women whom all little children bless;

Brave, earnest women, helpful to each other,

With finest scorn for all things low and mean;

Women who hold the names of wife and mother

Far nobler than the title of queen.


Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
