Wisdom Prolongs Life

Wisdom has built her home,
Seven pillars in front;
She killed beasts that did roam,
On the grounds she had hunt.

She had mingled her wine,
And furnished her table;
Wanting a man to dine,
Who was fit and able.

She sent forth her maidens,
And cried in the city;
Each bachelor she beckons,
Showed no sign of pity.

Come and eat of my bread,
Drink a cup of my wine;
So many times she said,
Trying for men to dine.

She had tried but no use,
Some scoffed to revile;
But who mocks gets abuse,
About her lifestyle.

Wisdom begins with fear,
Showing God the respect;
As you cherish Him dear,
Wisdom will not reject.
