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

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
