Fool's Gold - Poem by Barry Middleton

the sparkle is alluring
but glitter brings deceit

fever blinds the seeker
to surely guide defeat


fools divine false gold
until they learn the test

for real gold is heavy
its weight holds it at rest


a swirl of gentle water
and pyrite slips the pan

for treasure is elusive
and glitz beguiles a man


but real gold is solid
like love forever true

the color is quite subtle
and only finds the few
