Blessing for a Woman

it is addressed thusly:
A song.
it reads:
For her may there always be
 A child aside, upon her knee-
Where she is, may there be found
 A song, a hymn, a pleasant sound
Where raindrops droop and birds still sing
 Her finger bear a single ring--
A bower, broad-beamed place of rest
 A babe asleep upon her breast
Where fields fertile now bud forth grain
 And under shadow, after rain
Beside the fire, may safety find
 Her there, and there, a quiet mind.

  1. The crux of this blessing is the combination of children and pleasant sound. Note - not QUIET - that... would be suspicious.
