Chalcedony Stone

My love is like a shining stone
     Of polished chalcedony;
With hue of sea and sky combined,
     It glows in hope and humour.

My love is like a song begun
     When we were young and merry;
It fills me with the thrill of spring
     As winter lies around me.

My love is like a silent night
     Of warm and welcome comfort;
When life is full of too much strife,
     It heals the heart that hungers.
