Poem Title:  Jewels

Poem Category:  Humerous/ Funny Poems

Poet:  Amelia Wire Holmes Aaron

Poet Biography: 
Amelia Wire Holmes Aaron (1902-2000) was an American Poet

She never had a diamond
To grace her small left hand,
No sapphires or anything
Except her plain gold band,

No sparkling jewels of any kind
No precious stones or pearls,
Although she had one ruby
Her fourth straight baby girl,

She must have wanted riches
For 'tis natural to prefer,
But she settled for her babies
Who were shining jewels to her,

The only carats
dad was able to buy
Were on the dinner table,

Food for three square meals as well
So her only rings were the dinner bell.
