That woman is really blessed who,

Has faith in God, in her own virtue,

Who safeguards her chastity,

Is kind, modest, sincere and true.

She does not get carried away,

By people who are false and vain,

She shuns pride, envy, malice,

With dignity she holds her sway.

She is quiet and simple in bearing,

Pure of body, mind and soul,

She doesn't waver off the track,

To righteousness does she always cling.

With such a woman a good man can,

Conquer his self and the whole world,

Greater than Alexander* he can be,

Forever lofty in time's span.

Author's Notes/Comments:
