With such wise words do you enquire,
Wandering through the tundra’s fire,
Land, so cold, all remains still ’til,
Spring thaw arrives and water spills,
You wisdom baffles me, the cadences confound,
How you find such stability; the rest of us drown.
Wisdom, one of those qualities,
Significant to gain, falls —
From some men and women’s,
Lips, drip, water there to within swim,
Backstrokes in a pool of magnificence and legends lost,
Swimming in the minds of the brightest, at what cost?
Intelligence it’s an ocean,
Sea sickness, to much motion.
If you know where our treasure lay,
Perhaps, that’s knowledge we need save.
There can be utter foolishness in intelligence,
A smart man might actually notice, avoid his hell.
Empathy, a kind of wisdom,
Help souls broken, though lakes swells,
Health, mind, body, rescued from life’s frequent water spills.
With such wise words, emotive know — swimmer’s require free will.
