JH Sayyar's Sonnets

35
Stupid rejects wisdom wise accepts it:
As a kid is adopted at a kid less home
Do keep in mind wisdom sharpens wit,
To search for it on earth the silly roam
Wisdom calls you out at the city gates,
Where all gather as larks over the sea,
Stupidity of people at everywhere abate
Wisdom protects and makes you happy.
Those who reject books can never learn,
Falling in troubles people mock at you,
In the hell anger you do yourself burn,
If you call wisdom no answer but rue

Everywhere spreading wisdom you find,
Not before foolish but look wisdom behind
