Riddle poem

"Jewel's Riddle" 

Older than time 

Yet long out of sight 

Shining white diamonds 

And a glowing pearl 

Laid out on black velvet 

Then covered by a blue silk veil 

What are these jewels 

Precious beyond price 

Without which life's beauty 

Can't really be right 

What are they truly 

In their counting beyond numbers? 



Nothing less 

Than the stars 

and the moon 

Set in the splendor 

Of the night sky.
