W is for Wisdom


Wisdom sayings, wisdom verse

Aesop, the poetry of Donne


What Winnie the Pooh never

Learns from sticking his tummy

In a honey tree and, before that,

Rabbit’s house


What is wise to you, dear one?

Would you write it down?  Or do

You believe in show more than

In tell?


Which means I’ll learn from

Watching you more than in

Pitiless, didactic discourse


I will look to you for wisdom


Other times in the book we know

We find out back—made of living



Bound in round tree bark, etched

By wind and ice, illumined by

Nature’s hand
