Phenomenal Mondays

Happy Monday to all you phenomenal women out there! For all that you do effortlessly and naturally, the mundane and the sublime… remember to not forget who you are and hold your head high. Have a phenomenal week, everyone!

 

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Jaunty HatNow you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
