Priceless Treasure: A Poem
Seven seas and countless mountains circumvent the globe. Far stretched fields and highland hills clothed in grassy robes.
Snow topped peaks and hell bound pits give much to search and find, an artist’s stroke on every turn; His autograph there signed.
Yet all that lies and fills the space holds nothing to compare, the captivation of your glimpse no sight has been so fair.
To seek for more than distant look puts brave men’s pride to shame, yet risking pain involved in shun one dares to ask your name.
What’s found is more than might expect from such a daunting catch, beneath these pools of crystal specs a lovely soul to match.
While most good things there to explore and further venture in, prove their imperfections true; mere shells of white-washed skin.
To you that rule does not apply; exception marks your steps, for truly you are greater still beyond what meets the eye.
