The TAO of Women

She allows the daughter,
sitting beside her,
to take the first stitch.
The wise woman does not rush in
to take it apart.

She smiles,
and continues to sew her own stitches.

The daughters model the mothers.
Act wisely.
The daughters are watching.

~~ The TAO of Women,
PK Metz & Jacqueline L. Tobin, 1995 ~~
