hello butler

~

till your hair is white

ye shall

cultivate my grounds

be wary

harsh I am to the

undisciplined

the senseless do not stay with

me for long

I will weigh as heavily on the

senseless as a grindstone

I am Sofia

goddess of wisdom &

 I am true to my name

I am not accessible to many

listen

eunuch

!

take my advice

do not reject my counsel

put your feet into my fetters

& your neck into my collar

offer your skinny shoulder to my burden

do not be impatient of my bonds

court me with all your soul

& with all your might keep in

my ways

once you kneel before me

I will not let you

go

I hope

you are possessed by me

my property

in the end you will find rest in

me

& I will take the form of joy

for you

my fetters you will find

hasty pasty & tasty

my collar a precious necklace

my yoke will be a golden ornament

& my bonds be purple ribbons

you will wear me like a robe of

honor

you will put me on like a crown

of joy

!

sofia is brilliant she never fades

by those who love her she is readily

found

she anticipates those who desire her

by making herself known first

whoever gets up early to seek her

will have no trouble

but will find her sitting at the door

~

~

meditating on her is understanding

in its perfect form

and anyone keeping awake for her

will soon be free from care

for she herself searches everywhere

for those who are worthy of

her

benevolently appearing to them on

their ways

anticipating their every thought

for wisdom begins with the sincere

desire for instruction

care for instruction means loving

sofia

sofia is a spirit friendly

to humanity

though she will not let a

blasphemer’s words go

unpunished

~

her jealous ear overhears

everything

not even a murmur of complaint

escapes her

~

so beware of uttering frivolous

complaints

butler

restrain your tongue from finding

fault

even what is said in secret has

repercussions

& a lying mouth deals death to your

soul

~

blessed be ye

eunuch

whose hand

commits no crime

& who harbors no resentment

against her wisdoms

a special favor will be granted to

you for your loyalty

a most desirable portion in her

temple
