Pearl In The Shell
Walking along the beach one day
Where the water gathered shallow
An oyster lay amid the blue
Washed there from tides ago
A gentle hand reached for it then
To touch its ivory shell
Longing to see the pearl within
Twas a beauty shielded well
A forceful entry was not to task
For the shell would surely break
And such a beauty deserves to last
Despite sweet longings sake
So watchful eyes lingered there
Hoping to catch a chanceful glance
And as they waited patiently
They were given then the chance
That tiny oyster opened up
And bestowed a gift as well
Into those patient hands was placed
The pearl from within the oysters shell
~THE FLOWING PEN~
The most precious possession that ever comes
To a man in this world
Is a woman's heart.
