*802 DIAMOND BIRTHSTONE OF APRIL


Diamond allotrope of carbon
Hexagonal in crystal form.
Cut and clarity and colour
Gives each stone a unique brilliance
Through each facet cut like prisms
Capturing light - internal scattering
By refraction - scores of rainbows
Diamond allotrope of carbon

Diamonds prized with Kings and Despots
Pride of place in our Crown Jewels
Is the famous Star of Africa
Perfect cut and perfect colour
Like a raindropp - pure transparent.
Diamonds speak of love eternal
Imparting peace and inner strength.
Diamonds prized with Kings and Despots.

Diamond Birthstone month is April
Linked with Zodiac sign of Aries
Drawing strength from Mars the Planet
Nearest Earth in Solar System
Focussed healing through each diamond
Purifies a toxic bloodstream
And can sooth all brain diseases
Diamond Birthstone month is April.

Perfect gift for perfect lady
Diamond allotrope of carbon
Diamond prized by Kings and Despots
Diamond Birthstone month is April
April is month Birthstone diamond
Despots and Kings by prized diamond
Carbon of allotrope diamond
Lady perfect for gift perfect.

Dedicated to The Angel of April.

    I liked the lines:

    Like a raindropp - pure transparent.
    Diamonds speak of love eternal
    Imparing peace and inner strength.

    And:

    Perfect gift for perfect lady.

    The title of this poem caught my eye. Maybe because I'm born in April. I really enjoyed reading it from the first word to the last one and it made me smile. The sparkling Angel of April. Beautful. Sigh! ! !
    Have a nice day.

    I do believe my daughter is an angel of light. I appreciate these lovely descriptions and I love the new title I've learned for the diamond stone: Diamond allotrope of carbon;
    I think I will prefer it from now on. (Report) Reply
