Jewels - Poem by Valerie Dohren

White diamonds sparkle in the sand
And speckle darkened skies
Green em`ralds flash in glist`ning seas
Then glint in envious eyes

Blue sapphires dance in wand`ring streams
To shine in summer`s hue
With amethyst in heather set
In lavender there too

Bright rubies sway in poppy fields
To glow in fires of red
Are captured in the flow of blood
From heroes lying dead

Then pearls so lustre in the clouds
As through the sun defined
Whilst topaz sets my heart aglow
In fields of corn entwined

The golden lambent sunshine glows
When risen high at noon
With misty robes of silver then
Soft draped around the moon

Such beauty lingers `pon the earth
On mother nature`s gown
These burnished jewels yet deeply set
In her adorning crown

    There is a lot of artistry here. The best writers can make perplexity simple and elegant, so you scarcely see the darning needles feverishly connecting the threads..this is one of those jewels, can be read over and over and can take something new away each time..profound. (Report) Reply

    Gems are effectively beautiful,
    set them on platinum and gold,
    prettier the precious jewel,
    so is your poem marvel..
