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
* "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!!
