What is Gold?

What is Gold? by Mary O’Neill

Gold is a metal
Gold is a ring
Gold is very
Beautiful thing.
Gold is the sunshine
Light and thing
Warm as a muffin
On your skin.
Gold is the moon
Gold are the stars;
Jupiter, Venus
Saturn and Mars,
Gold is the color of
Clover honey
Gold is a certain
Kind of money.
Gold is alive
In a flickering fish
That lives its life
In a crystal dish.
Gold is the answer
To many a wish.
Gold is feeling
Like a king
It’s like having the most
Of everything—–
Long time ago
I was told
Yellow’s mother’s name
Is gold….

What is Gold?
