Questions Answered, Wisdom Transferred


Questions may be very harsh
And may give even irritation
Still give them invitation
As wounds they may wash

Question may appear silly
Accept them with mercy
Answer them with courtesy
Mind’s balance they may tally

Questions may be funny
Find out the hidden truth
Whose size may be mammoth
This may make life sunny

When a question is made
To answer it is one’s duty
If the answer is a beauty
It may provide cool shade

If questions get no provision
For answers that are proper
Confusion may grow deeper
Bringing a disastrous division

A question when is witty
Its answer must be shrewd
And must be never rude
This makes life pretty

Those questions that confuse
May give undue botheration
By doing perfect deliberation
Super answers, we can produce

Let no question be ignored
As it indicates lack of brain
By thinking, brain you train
Let colossal wisdom be stored

To ask a question provide a right
Let answer to the question be right
Though answers won’t come overnight
Believe that they are within sight

To question, please encourage all
Then only real progress comes,
A true soul happily welcomes
Questions that are big and also small.

poet Anne Bradstreet

Lo, now four other act upon the stage,

The first son unto phlegm, grandchild to water,
Unstable, supple, cold and moist's his nature
