Calling The Moon - Poem by Pete Crowther

The oyster, the mussel, and pearl
belong to the Moon, it is said,
and when she is gone, like a girl
who is lost, you can hear them cry,
oh, longingly from where they lie
in the sand of the soft sea bed.

    I feel guilty to have pearl earings now. Very nice

    Oh! I like this... I most absolutely do. If I were to be terribly picky, I'd suggest a removal of the comma at the end of the third line. Comma or not, however - this is wonderful.
