*935 SAPPHIRE BIRTHSTONE OF SEPTEMBER


Dipyramidal - sweet sapphire
Saturation tone and hue
All contribute to sapphires richness
A precious stone of azure blue
Kings - Knights and Knaves would all desire
Their fairest ladies to adorn
A cool blue stone - but full of fire
Dipyramidal - sweet sapphire.

Sapphires gems of situation
Sri Lanka - Kashmir - other places
Pink (padparadshas) - yellow - white
And even green - through iron traces.
Blue is sapphire's presentation
It speaks of truth and constancy
Insight and interpretation.
Sapphires gems of situation.

Sapphire birthstone of September
Bringing calmness - healing tensions
Linked with Zodiac sign of Virgo
Perfecting us in all dimensions.
Energy derived from Saturn
Rings of love and of completeness
Fitting in a perfect pattern
Sapphire birthstone of September.

Sapphire nature's perfect gemstone
Dipyramidal sweet sapphire
Sapphires gems of situation
Sapphire birthstone of September
September of birthstone sapphire
Situation of gems sapphires
Sapphire sweet dipyramidal
Gemstone perfect nature's sapphire.

This poem is dedicated to A Sapphire Angel.

    since i was born under the zodiac sign of virgo, so allow me to leave words in here..this is partly realistic and non realistic...why? ..coz behavior depends on the person regardless of zodiac signs, ...but as i know, ''virgo the virgin'' is naturally friendly...they talk less lies, heheheheh...sapphire? ...of course, sapphire refers to the blue variety of corundum...it is the most precious of blue gemstones. each color has significant..

    this piece is educational..as far as i know, the traits that are written here are all the qualities of a good person...this details are properly arranged..the words are all soft and gentle..it is as smart as the virgins and as tough as sapphire...john knight, i like this piece so without invitation am here, hope its just fine...

    i like the thought coz i can relate to this, and i found out that by reading a work that has a connection to ourselves will inspire as to move and do ours nicely...if i were to be asked, this is nice... (Report) Reply

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
