"A Being breathing thoughtful breath,
A Traveller between life and death;
The reason firm, the temperate will,
Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill;
A perfect Woman, nobly planned,
To warn, to comfort, and command;
And yet a Spirit still, and bright
With something of angelic light. "
Wordsworth "She Was a Phantom of Delight"
The perfect woman is a phantom. Every man is looking for one, but each has his own specifications . Unfortunately, should he be lucky enough to find his ideal, he can then feel either emasculated and intimidated by the goddess, or exasperated with the vapid doll. Just as well most men end up with a lesser mortal who they can live with in harmony, with each of us being the best they can ourselves, but neither of us expecting too much of our partner.
