279. A Song of Solomon
 
By Josephine Preston Peabody
 
 
KING SOLOMON was the wisest man
  Of all that have been kings.
He built an House unto the Lord;
  And he sang of creeping things.
 
Of creeping things, of things that fly,        5
  Or swim within the seas;
Of the little weed along the wall,
  And of the cedar-trees.
 
And happier he, without mistake,
  Than all men since alive.        10
God’s House he built; and he did make
  A thousand songs and five.
