Wisdom


It's the scale of Foresight
The keen eyes of Prudence
The Perception of what's right
Balanced Logic, intelligence.
The compass of Judgment,
Solid rock of Discretion,
Bright lamp of Discernment
And the soundness of Reason.
A gem all men search for
The rare gift of Solomon
The treasure we may store
From Experience we've known.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
