Best Poem of Marilyn A. Ellsworth

Wisdom Grows

With tender tendrils
Wisdom grows
To measures...
No man really knows.
It grasps and holds
With tenacious will
Whatever stands
In its presence... still:

For it to wind
Its growing structure
Through their mind.

Full and fine,
Inside you and me.
We stand in awe
As she sows her seeds
Through our borrowed words
And mirrored deeds.
It is not latent
Charm or wit
But Godly Wisdom ...
