Precious Stones

There are crystals in the caves

when moisture gathers where the men are mining.


There are diamonds in the water

when the sun is shining.


There are emeralds in the forest

when dew drops glisten on the leaves.


There are rubies on my finger

when I prick it and it bleeds.


There are sapphires in your eyes

when they are full of angry tears.


There are jewels in our world,

set in love and bound with years.
