Treasure Island

Alexander Coppedge

(June 25,1954 / Warrenton, North Carolina)

Diamond [Hades Delight]

You are an astonishing beauty
A treasure, so rare, few men will see
You come in and illuminate a room
Draw from all angles eyes to see
The sparkle is in your motion
Color variations make the fellows breath
A rainbow spectrum and its arrays
A priceless precious stone to me
Stillness is your elegance
Your precise cut is the awe
Reflecting back as a mirror my image
Walking a model promenade
No need to speak already said
You decorate my palace
You make this place my home

Hades ruler of the Underworld. Prince of darkness and the host therein. Guardian of the gates of Hell. Fallen angel to reside with the earth host. He who profits from flesh death. Diamonds.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
