“At last free, / at last I am a woman free! / No more tied to the kitchen, stained amid the stained pots, / no more bound to the husband / who thought me less / than the shade he wove with his hands.”
“No more anger, no more hunger / I sit now in the shade of my own tree. / Meditating thus, I am happy, serene.”
Sumangalamata, Indian Buddhist poet
(6th cent. BCE)
