  1. I pity them, the poor distracted fools
    Who, gawking at those round and shiny jewels,
    O’er looked the greater beauty they adorned –
    The once by whom those very jewels were worn.
    Ah, but there’s a benefit to this –
    Those blinded by the surface feature miss
    The greater treasure, leaving us who see
    A better share of that lady’s beauty.


  2. I just stumbled across your blog today, and I have to say, I adore reading your poems. They never end how I think they will, and this one, especially, resonated with me. I’ve lived this feeling many times over, and I’ve never read something that defines such a phenomenon so precisely and accurately. So talented! I look forward to reading more of your work with my morning coffee!! ❤


  3. Are not thy eyes your jewels, peach cheeks and a glowing smile, that should make them run a mile. And what of your pearl teeth as you speak , dam they must be blind.
