Between Iron And Silver - Poem by Robert Hiers

Stability with a lustrous shine
A hint of preciousness
Coursing through the stuff of life

Common as folks, rare as star shadows
Forged firmly in the flames of right
Cast into finery, befitting jewels

You are found between iron and silver,
Strong, stable, and beautiful

Inspired by a line in Hannibal, by Thomas Harris: “The most stable elements, Clarice, appear in the middle of the periodic table, roughly between iron and silver. Between iron and silver. That is appropriate for you, I think. “
