She speaks with tempered wit
and out drips tender care
from lips that brim
with wonder and awe.

She walks in patience like the dawn,
neither fast nor slow.
A rising glow that with time shows
all things
Both true and clear.

She beholds what no one knows,
A thought too bold to keep untold,
A knowledge beyond
word or sound.

The artistry of you and me,
of she and she
and he.

And welcoming all who gather
inside her winsome lair
find Wisdom, and a bosom friend
of whom none else compare.
