Aquamarine - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

I saw an ornament today
Meant for a lady's neck
A pale blue stone its center graced
With smaller gems bedecked

The hand that formed this masterpiece
So brilliantly inspired
Was surely led by angel wings
To guide each cunning wire

They told me this gem had a name
That sounded like the sea
Declaring it a very rare
Beryl of fine degree

I knew I never could posses
This most enchanted find
Too dear to ever purchase it
Just keep it in my mind.
