Precious Stones

Little boy with heavy pockets 
Make my eyes pop out their sockets.
Every stone your eyes find shiny,
Whether big, however tiny.
You swoop them up, your pockets full
Every stone has magical pull.
Your shelves all lined with precious stones
You polished as you brought them home.
Before you go to bed each night 
You feel each one holding them tight.
Then as you sleep snug in your bed
Precious stones sparkle in your head.

Brenda,I like your original take on the gems topic. The picture and words seem to have been made for each other. My granddaughter and I often go on the beach collecting pebbles; back home we varnish them and all their colours get highlighted; they do look like diamonds. #7 // paul
