Carved from a rib and yet made whole
With sacrifice in her spirit and fire in her soul

Gentle in nature and mindful of life
Soft hands for caring but with fire in her soul

Nurturing nations, raising generations
Wisdom in her actions with fire in her soul

Sugar and spice, and all things nice
Underestimated oft with fire in her soul

Transgressors encounter her volcanic ice
Molten lava erupting from the fire in her soul
