Short but Sweet

“I’m really starting to enjoy short poems. Though you tease my taste buds with instant melody, how deliciously enticing.”

The Happiness of Seeking Wisdom

wisdom1

Happy is the person who meditates on wisdom

who reflects in his heart on her ways

and ponders her secrets

pursuing her like a hunter

and lying in wait on her paths

and listens at her doors

who camps near her house

and fastens his tent peg to her walls

who pitches his tent near her

and so occupies an excellent lodging place

who places his children under her boughs

who is sheltered by her from the heat

and dwells in the midst of her glory

– Ecclesiasticus / Sirach 14:20-27
