Gentleness born of wisdom

         Show by your good life
         that your works are done
         with gentleness born of wisdom.
                   —James 3.13



Beloved,
be my wisdom,

my way of seeing,
knowing by your love.

Be my gentleness,
my soul meeting another.

Let my wisdom be
tender respect for all.

You who are so gentle with me,
by your grace

let my gentleness
be my good life.
