He Was Enamored by Her

He was Enamored by Her
–after King Solomon

he was enamored
by the sound
of her voice
as she sang.

he was enamored
by the tenderness
of her bright smile
shining through her lips.

he was enamored
by the kindness
of the tone
of her talk

he was enamored
by the gentleness
felt in the hand
of her touch

and the frozen crystals
of his cold, cruel heart
melted away

and he asked her
what is your name?
and she replied,

some call me knowledge.
some call me prudence.
some call me understanding.
and some call me wit.

but you may call me wisdom.
