About foot binding

BALLAD OF YEEN WANG


Pregnable, quick in footfall
Gleeful, brunette-bright
Custodian of hope,
Female, vincible kindling, as

Winking, tossing in hearty
Turncoat deceit
Grownups execute
Their attendance
On traditionís bent, and

Soon, whitely wrapped
In layers,
Each gentle
Together lethal,
Hobbled, shrieking

Your womanís protest
Each foot cocooned,
You tottered
The road
To beauty, my mother

This is a very interesting poem, I delighted in the fact that when read from bottom to top it made as much sense. Each line succinct, much like the intention of the white binding. Not supposing distortion, rather, insuring a purposeful clarification. M.True

I've heard of the practice of foot binding - what price, beauty? Sad - painful to read, but necessary - well done, Lucille.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I viewed a video recently wherein an elderly Chinese woman was showing the result of foot binding..I cried for days..when will the plight of women cease in this woeful world..
Thank you for bringing attention to this evil tradition..
