In Her Praise -by Robert Graves This they know well The Goddess yet abides Though each new lovely woman whom she rides Straddling her neck for a year or two or three Should sink beneath such weight of majesty And groping back to humankind gainsay The headlong power that whitened all her way With a broad track of trefoil - leaving you Her chosen lover ever again thrust through With daggers your purse rifled your rings gone - Nevertheless they call you to live on To parley with the pure oracular dead To hear the wild pack whimpering overhead To watch the moon tugging at her cold tides Woman is mortal woman She abides The poem consistently reminds the reader of the celestial being commonly referred to as the woman It is about a place in heaven set aside just for the lovely new woman A place that no matter what hardship that new woman goes through will wait there patiently until she has been readied to accept her fate and return to heaven This they know well The word they is a clear reference to the woman indicating that deep within every woman is the knowledge of their heavenly aspect The Goddess yet abides Though each new lovely woman whom she rides Straddling her neck for a year or two or three Should sink beneath such weight of majesty The grand title of Goddess is bestowed upon and is new lovely woman which is straddled around every neck for a year or two or three until the new woman succumbs to its power for she is still not ready to bear the weight of the title Graves attempts to induce the mindset that women are celestial beings by manifesting their heavenly aspect With words such as Goddess and majesty
