Gran's eyes are emerald green.
Rose-cut gems, hard as stone,
Polished crowns, eyelid-thrones.
The sharpest pair I've seen.
Mum's eyes are emerald green.
Cabochons, satin-smooth,  
Halo-bright, gems that soothe.
The warmest pair I've seen.
My eyes are emerald green.
Crystal sheen, sea-glass tears,
Through the haze, their smiles appear -
My favourite Irish queens.

    What chiseled rhythm on the lee lines, Heather! With rhyme as fine as wine! It bobs and weaves and floats like a feather. How I wish that it were mine!

    Those Irish eyes must be smiling the way you have described them here.

    Awesome, and I just know your Irish eyes are smiling. Hmmm, maybe I will use this kind of theme myself!!! My eyes are green too, but I spice them up greener with contact lenses!
