Of Old Fashioned Wisdom - Poem by Francis Duggan

Of old fashioned wisdom I stand in defence
Old sayings to me do make a whole pile of sense
Old pearls of wisdom that have been passed down
From the very wise deceased elders of the town
They were not college educated as many are today
But they were quite wise and clever in their own way
The gift of life from them has forever gone
But the wisdom in their words destined to live on
Of the high achievers of today we read of and hear about
And though many of them highly educated their depth of wisdom in doubt
And though the praises of them many do like to sing
Bookish knowledge from wisdom is a different thing
Old fashioned wisdom seems similar to old fashioned rhyme
In that many see it as belonging to another time.
