Every so often
Wisdom speaks his name.
Sometimes he hears it outside.
He walks to the window and listens,
and often follows
the flowing sound of the voice.
He sets out with Wisdom,
striding with confidence and poise
past problems of all kinds.
People sometimes stare.
He’s just a small, bald man,
but with Wisdom
he steps across mountains
and swims in vast seas.
