Brass That Masquerades

Brass that masquerades as gold,
Fit for any photo-fit, a counterfeit concealed.
I know, I know you,
Hiding naive amber under the Sun,
When you need not be devalued.

Glass that tries a diamond life
Won't shine the same despite its cut.
Not fit for their crowns-
The product of sand and not finer science-
But you don't need to be.

Gold is silent; brass can sing,
Your panes aren't made from diamond rings.
To change the way you were when born
Defames the way I love your form.

    Hi Annie! I love the way you finish off with a perfectly rhymed verse and a lovely cadence... and the 'tries...di(amond)' assonance in your second stanza. This is so well composed, with wonderful wording! Well done!! Keith :)
