Fading beauty when out of sight?

Would an Emerald lose its grace? 

If hidden from view, for want of face. 

Would its magnificence remain? 

If warranted praise was no longer attained.

Would a Diamond lose brightness?

If unadmired, does it lose pure whiteness?

Should jewels be stranded in a velveteen box

Would they transform into unremarkable rocks?

Would the Opal lose iridescence? 

If unobserved, would it lose opalescence? 

Would the fiery colours, that are so visible by daylight

Shine still as bright when hidden by night? 

Would the shimmer of a Ruby wither unseen

If without admiration, would it lose its sheen? 

Would the imagery of love and passion fade

If we disregard the unconscious symbolism made?

The allure of beauty endures, even if darkness obscures.

True brilliance, an Emerald and your magnificence. 

Both unique, both rare, and both transcending compare.

Whether spotlighted, unsighted, love invited or unrequited.


Does the emerald lose its beauty for lack of admiration? 

Does gold, or ivory, or purple? 

A lyre or a dagger, a rosebud or a sapling?

Marcus Aurelius
