I've picked a new poem for this week, one that is different from my first in several ways.
1-They were written on different continents.
2-They were not written by the same person.
3-They are drastically different in length.
This week's selection was written by Orson F. Whitney, the man for whom the Whitney Awards are named.
Wit and Wisdom
Orson F Whitney
As deepest waves with darkest volume flow,
Though gems be glittering in their depths below,
So wisest thoughts will oft the dullest seem,
While wit's bright bubbles gild the shallow stream.
This one shouldn't be too hard. At least that's the theory.
