«·BROTHER BRUIN. · A SONG OF FLIGHT.·»

“A HELPMEET FOR HIM.”

Woman was made for man’s delight,—
  Charm, O woman! Be not afraid!
His shadow by day, his moon by night,
  Woman was made.

Her strength with weakness is overlaid;
  Meek compliances veil her might;
Him she stays, by whom she is stayed.

World-wide champion of truth and right,
  Hope in gloom, and in danger aid,
Tender and faithful, ruddy and white,
  Woman was made.
