Wintry Gem Of White

A drop gleams brightly in the light On winter’s nape that hangs on iced trees; Its shine endures and fills the night, With a lacquer from nature's alchemy. Each shape is unique than the rest, Wondrously strung as dew of worth, Rare South Sea ones; they're ocean's best, Designed by hands to enchant our earth. Woven tight flashing through chilled air To warm the nip of a wintry spell Oval or round, these gems declare The sparkling white made to excel. Lovely are pearls in endless streams Bestowed to a girl at eighteen. For Contest: Precious Stones and Gems
