I love my Ida

she labors for her family

she contends for her man

fierce for her children's welfare

she knows who & what she is

no mixing or mincing of characters

she in confident & holds her own

equally true as marrow meets bone

with an engaging personality

& a flare for love

created flesh & blood by Spirit

beautiful pure innocent soul

a fun-loving creature

to have & to hold

to whisper sweet nothings

warm & bold

this love of my good woman

a distinct person of mettle

this love of no-dream

in copious times or in disaster
