About foot binding
BALLAD OF YEEN WANG
Pregnable, quick in footfall
Custodian of hope,
Female, vincible kindling, as
Winking, tossing in hearty
On traditionís bent, and
Soon, whitely wrapped
Your womanís protest
Each foot cocooned,
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..
