Ode to the Diamond

a poem by Edith Pereira

This is all about my curiosity
and deep-seated views that have built-up
over the summers that I have enjoyed.

D is all about your Daintiness.
I is for the Impressions that you create
A is the Attractiveness that you possess
M is the Material value that goes with you
O is for the Outstanding beauty
N is the Never-ending lust
D is finally the Darling

that you will be, for the fairer sex

So, dear diamond whatever.
