The Superwoman

W&N Watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm - 8" x 12" unframed
 

What will the superwoman be, of whom we sing -
She who is coming over the dim border
Of Far To-morrow, after earths disorder
Is tidied up by Time? What will she bring
To make life better on tempestuous earth?
How will her worth
Be greater than her forbears? What new power
Within her being will burst into flower?

She will bring virtue; but it will not be
The pale, white blossom of cold chastity
Which hides a barren heart. She will be human -
Not saint or angel, but the superwoman -
Mother and mate and friend of superman.
- Extract from "The Superwoman" by Ella Wheeler Willcox

ITEM ID : TheSuperwoman
