in ebony

two feathers, each four inches long - bought *for a song - comprise a pair of rings I wear rings for my ears, not for my hands, with silver strands of beads entwine my plumes divine! the dark hue of the feathers goes with many clothes and flatters me in ebony * "for a song" is slang for "at a bargain price" In this case, I found my long black feather earrings at a garage sale for only two dollars and have been wearing them a lot!! Written 10/19/12 by Andrea Dietrich for the nette onclaud's JUST A MINUTE! Poetry Contest

    Alot of good things can be found in garage sales. I found three beautiful bracelets at a real bargain. Andrea - we used to be five sisters,one passed away. now we are only four. Good luck in the contest. Lucilla

    Beautiful rings and things for a beautiful woman. Such a fine poem - you could have knocked me over with a feather. Love, daver

    Yes, glad you can enjoy them. :) Wear them in good health. Other peoples phobias can take the joy right out of life sometimes. Rock on, you little hippie chick.

    this poem has a great flow to it! is this a true story? i couldn't wear used earrings. the thought of the germs on them, even when cleaned, grosses me out. but glad you can enjoy them :) good luck in the contest :)

    Awesome poem with an incredible flow!! Hey, when u are done with those earrings and get ready to have your own garage sale, let me u like the political clerihew...I really just wrote it bc Ruben challenged me..I think I have to write another one for him. My sister gave me a roll of Obama toilet paper this evening and she was quite amused with her gag gift...I put it in the bathroom that my most Democratic family members use to keep the fun going. All in good humor.
