Wisdom Cry

Wisdom Cry
January 8
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
