POEMS: "Wisdom from an old Owl" Like 0 Twitter Amira Carluccio Follow Jan. 21, 2017, 2 p.m. in Life and Styles Views: 757 Like us on facebook Like the Solomon of fowl Sat a wise old owl Perched in a Sycamore tree, While the moonlight glimmered And the starlight shimmered, These words he spoke to me: "I guess you've heard I'm a wise old bird, And if wisdom you would find... Always look for the best And your life will be blest, To all others' faults be blind. "In this life, I know You will find it so That if you think kindly of others, You'll soon find that it's true They'll think kindly of you... Praise your sisters and your brothers!" You may think me a fool - Owls don't talk, as a rule, But in solemn tone he said: "Don't be quick to enact Words you'll wish to retract, Dwell upon the good instead!" Though I hate to admit it, I could see, once I did it, What that wise owl said was true. Your faults I'll overlook 'Cause it says in The Book What you sow comes back to you! Now, if you will agree With what he said to me, Then my faults you will ignore... Like that sage bird said We'll both come out ahead If we judge less, and praise more! by Connie Hinnen Cook for daily inspiration: https://amiracarluccio.com/ Share Mail Messenger Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Comments Related Article Life and Styles My Ultimate Car Trip Playlist Life and Styles My Satellite Life and Styles Pregnant and Loving it?
