First Line: Wise solomon, with all his rambling doubts
Last Line: He, to be sure, had talk'd them all asleep.
Subject(s): Solomon (10th Century B.c.)


WISE Solomon, with all his rambling doubts,
Might talk two hours, I guess, or thereabouts;
"And yet," quoth he, "my elders, to their shame,
"Kept silence all, nor answer did they frame."
Dear me! what else but silence should they keep?
He, to be sure, had talk'd them all asleep.
