Wisdom Cry


Proverbs 8:1-3

Does not wisdom call, and understanding lift up her voice?  On top of the heights beside the way , where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gates, at the opening to the city, at the entrance of the doors she cries out.


Above the traffic above the street

through the walking and pounding feet

over the capitols and great halls

in the grocery stores and shopping malls

around the offices and people working high

above the buildings that scrape the sky

she is heard by all who pass by

wisdom raises her voice to cry


In the home at school or outside having fun

in the rain wind and lightning or under the sun

playing working talking and making future plans

greeting singing fighting or agreeably shaking hands

drinking coffee and eating carrot cake

braving a tornado or sustaining an earthquake

she is heard by all who pass by

Wisdom raises her voice to cry
