A Heart of Diamond

Fri, 11/03/2017 - 13:15 -- EELoura

A heart of diamond can't break

A stream won't flow from a stone.

Even if the earth were to shake,

The mountain stands on its own.


Is a glare made of diamond?

How else, then, could it have cut?
A word drilled though the mine and

found an aquifer in the rut.


The offensive dynamite

Brought the stoic mountain down

All the while jeering, "Yeah right,

Not so strong now on the ground!"
