My Perfect Pearl

The life of this pearl, how it grew from the sand
Is a wonderful story to tell
For it bothered the flesh in an oyster's grey shell
And the oyster then coated the sand
It was milky and white, added band after band
'Till it formed a white shell
So a creature can't tell
That it grew from a grain of the sand

This gemstone of mine
From the depths of the sea
Has a glittering shine
That is easy to see
So it's hard to imagine, this treasure so fine
All began as a grain in the sea

    Rereading YOUR pearl poem. AS lovely as ever.

    You made the process of how a pearl is made sound so romantic! It's so interesting that pearls are the result of what is basically an invasion - almost like an oyster's version of an immune system haha. But anyway, you did an absolutely wonderful job with this one. I'm adding it to my favs. (Soupmail!)
