Emerald that is shining so brightly, How do you hold my eye, oh, so sweetly? Like a stone, carved by sun, e'er slightly, Carved ever so perfect, and so neatly. Along with my own, you hold many eyes, With your perfect reflection and soft glint; Your beauty nothing but a sweet surprise, With a lovely, and shining, blue-green tint. Whether you're cut, and perfected, or new, Or received by the dirtiest of hands, I will always be mesmerized by you; Whether in a necklace, or wedding bands. So shine like sun's gold, or the moonlight's tone, Shine, the prettiest, most beautiful stone.

    What a "gem" of a poem this is, Dana'lynn.... (and just so happens to be my own birth stone, as this one is also a favorite of mine!) Congratulations!

    Very beautiful write here my fellow poet! I thought this a fantastic poem, one of enlightenment!! The emerald is my favorite stone even though the ruby is my birthstone! I personally like the very deep and dark green ones! Your poem flowed very well and rhymed even better...thanks for writing this fine piece of art!! Awesome Work!!

    I presume your birthday is in the merry month of May? (another rhyme) A very good write. I have never seen yellow emeralds. The only ones I'm familiar with are the green ones.

    oh I didn't mean they are yellow, just reflecting the suns hue!! I said "blue-green tint"
