Creation Of Woman

I don't know where I got this from but it was in my collection of odds and ends. It is the recipe of a Hindu god who created woman and it goes like this:

“Take the lightness of the leaf, the glance of the fawn, the gaiety of the sun’s rays and the tears of the mist; the inconstancy of the wind and the timidity of the hare; the vanity of the peacock and the softness of the down on its throat. Add the harshness of the diamond, the sweet flavour of honey, the cruelty of a tiger, the warmth of fire and the chill of snow; the chatter of the jay and the cooing of the turtle dove. Melt and mingle these ingredients and woman is the result.”
