I am a wonderful help to women,
Not only women, though!
The hope of something to come. I harm
You brush your hair before a date or whenever you want to be beautiful.
No citizen except my slayer.
Normally it is not harmful, but if you hit it on the pointy ends...
Rooted I stand on a high bed.
A round brush is often kept on the bathroom shelf, upright in a glas or so.
I am shaggy below. Sometimes the beautiful
Brushes made of (horse)hair are quite shaggy.
Peasant's daughter, an eager-armed,
Proud woman grabs my body,
She grabs the handle.
Rushes my red skin, holds me hard,
She goes over the rubber part to clear out her hair of the brush.
Claims my head. The curly-haired
Woman who catches me fast will feel
Our meeting. Her eye will be wet.
Brushing curly hair can be a pain. Ouch!
Who am I?
