Silvery Lines


Silvered glass alone
Becomes mirrors fine!
For thirty silver pieces just,
Judas betrayed Christ.

A gold medal is worth
Many silver ones;
Under the silver moon
True lovers make love!

Silver metal is
Purified by fire;
The silver screen begets
Many an artiste good.

Silver vessels made
Artistically like
candle-sticks and trophies
are prized possessions!

There’s a silver lining
In every cloud;
Silver-fish make
Old books and paper, powder!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
