Silver Strands

Silver Strands Woven in Gold ~~~~ Beneath the earth in the vale of the kings For countless years undiscovered, unseen In an old leather bag bound with brass rings A necklet so rare, ‘twas fit for a queen This beautiful piece with deep lustrous shine In beaten red gold and fine silver strands A stunning linked chain of complex design Depicting the skill of artistic hands From where had it come, to whom would belong? A Queen, or princess of elegant grace? Whose story was writ in the poet’s song Sung by the slave girls in this ancient place A priceless treasure found under the sands A link to the past in fine silver strands

    Hey, did you know I had a sonnet somewhere around written about you? It was for a contest last month on people we miss here at Soup. Glad to see you BACK.

    So nice to hear from you once again! And a very elegant sonnet. One wee suggestion 3rd verse line 4 maybe [of an artisan's hands] would flow better? Welcome home. Light & Love
