wordspoem #4

wordspoem #4

I’d like to write something using
chalcedony such a strange strong word
it’s a chert says daughter #3 who knows
everything worth knowing a chert like
jasper semi precious stones tolkien uses
it in his poem “errantry” with all its
astonishing double inner and outer
rhymings he pairs it with ebony but
chalcedony doesn’t come into my daily
life and I usually write on dailiness
maybe I need a little more chalcedony
in my pocket maybe some jasper too
