About Wisdom

Sunday Muse #223

I see her passing through my neighborhood nightly

we all call her the queen of wisdom

rather a shy lady keeps much to herself

preferring quiet simple nights to attention or credit

it is her pet owl’s place at all times to gaze behind her never ahead

contemplating the much heralded wisdom of generations past

absorbing history’s otherwise much neglected wit and lore

true wisdom often dons no spangled radiant garb

    There is much to be gained in looking back, a wise person reflects (owls too it seems.) learns from mistakes, makes every every effort to repeat what led to success. Cheers.
