Flint

So, the day this gets posted is my birthday. Yay. Anyways, figured this would be a good poem for today. It is one of the more powerful ones I found in that collection I copied, and I keep coming back to it every so often to reread it.

Flint by Christina Rossetti

An emerald is as green as grass,
A ruby red as blood,
A sapphire shines as blue as heaven,
A flint lies in the mud.

A diamond is a brilliant stone,
To catch the world’s desire;
An opal holds a fiery spark;
But a flint holds fire.
