Costume jewels are a lovely creation!
Ovals of "gold" and some little red stones--
Sunflowers, in my imagination--
Take me back now to my old childhood home.
Unexpected joy in my possession!
Melancholy moods it quickly dispels,
Elevating to joyful expression
Bright thoughts that had lain dormant for a spell.
Rich-looking little ornaments charm me
And give a lovely instant connection
Calling up memories of family:
Engaging gifts of sparkling confection,
Life-giving friends, smiles, laughter, and sunshine.
Elegant, smile-provoking collection:
These things awaken sweet memories of mine.
