Advent 2012 : Day 16

O Sapientia

This child is relentless

in his love for the world,

always asking questions,

seeking understanding – 

the most amazing questions;

as if he sees his fingerprints

in everything around

and wants to know,

from sun and rock and leaf and calf,

from ant and hyrax,

locust, lizard...

Do you see, too?

Proverbs 30:24-28

O Sapientia

O Wisdom, coming forth from the mouth of the Most High,

reaching from one end to the other mightily,

and sweetly ordering all things:

Come and teach us the way of prudence.
