Jill’s Bucket of Wisdom

Jack and Jill,

Went up the hill,

This time, to fetch, 

A bucket of wisdom.

.

But shortly,

Jack sat down,

Ignoring Jill’s frown.

Declaring he did not believe,

In this ‘ half-baked plan’.

.

But contrary to Jack,

Jill believed.

And continued the uphill task

Keeping faith in her belief.

.

Jill completed the expedition,

And went up,

To the top of the hill.

And wonder of wonders,

There she saw the Goddess of hills.

.

She found the goddess,

Waiting for her there,

With a bucket,

Full of wisdom.

And she said to Jill,

“Child, take this bucket, 

Its yours.

You have believed,

And worked on it.

Hence wisdom  must be granted,

To a heart so pure.”
