What to get, What to keep.

Get wisdom, get insight, and do not forget

the things that I tell you, or you will regret.

She’ll keep you and guard you.Your love is the key.

You start by desiring that wisdom run free.

—–

Let insight exalt you, her honor accept.

She’ll place a fair garland atop your bowed head; 

a crown higher valued than silver or gold,

more beautiful than you could get on your own.
