 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Wisdom has built her home,

She carved it out of stone;

After coming from Rome,

Much wiser she has grown.


Carved out seven pillars,

Then she prepared her meat;

Mixed wine in her cellars,

Set the table to seat.


She sent out her maidens,

Calls to the high places;

Ears open she listens,

Comes for her embraces.


If naïve bring him here,

Lacking understanding;

They do not need to fear,

For the mind expanding.


Come and eat some good food,

Drinking of the best wine;

Be in a joyous mood,

Be happy as you dine.


Abandon foolish ways,

The manner that you live;

Start living all your days,

Cognitively active.


Mockers want to insult,

Evil want to abuse;

Coping is difficult,

Rationale for to choose.


Reprove not a mocker,

He will merely hate you;

With being a scoffer,

Even if you tell true.


Reprove a wise person,

They will be loving you;

That thoughts not worsen,

For what they should construe.


So, educate the wise,

That he will be wiser;

And to open their eyes,

Being an adviser.


Fear of the Lord will start,

Beginning with wisdom;

In both the mind and heart,

Knowledge of His Kingdom.
