“The bejeweled delta” a tribute to the beautiful local scenery #poem #poetry #verse

The bejeweled delta
Spreads wide
Its myriad fingers
Of sparkling grains of golden quartz
Far across the deep sea of aquamarine
Beneath a scorching carnelian orb
A’shimmer in the topaz heavens
From earliest dawn
To the hour of the setting sun
As by night
The silvery light of the great moon
Pulses and glows
Over the blessรจd kingdom
From high in the great indigo firmament
A’sparkle with the sprinklings of stardust
From a million diamonds
Softly showered over the land
