The wise Owl

A wise old Owl
sat in an oak.

The more he saw,
The less he spoke.

The less he spoke,
The more he heard.

Why can't we be like
that wise old bird.
A language does have its limits,
but the verse
that can be created from it is
only as limited as are the abilities
of the one who writes.

WISE.CRACK :roll:

Hi,
I make
a joking remark.
You make
a REPLY

Hi,
wise
guy

Hi,
YOU:
who
think that
you know
more than
I.

And that's
(what is at present possible)

Hi,
wise person.
let's make
(what is at present possible)

I wish I could fly
and I fear I may die.

I wish
I have everything
I could wish for.

For I still knowing
no more than before:

I wish I had
Good sense and
Judgment

I wish I showed
the ability to understand
what happens at this moment.

I wish I decided on
the right action:
a wise man
a wise decision.

Hi,
It was wise of you
to ask this question.

I wish
I have everything
I could wish for.

Hi,
none the wiser
still knowing no more
than before:

I
was still
none the wiser,
even after
that awl had told me
how to be wise.

Hi,
I wish
you good luck.
Bye-bye

I make
a joking remark.
You make
a REPLY

Hi, and Good-bye
