Favorite Earrings

So shiny and pretty when they are new!

They add pep to your step and make you dazzle!

A tiny splash of instant beauty

Perfect placement to accent a smile

And bring glitter to your eyes.

Earrings!

Some are precious.

They last a lifetime,

Jewels which you simply must exhibit

On the holiest of days.

Only a little attention is needed

to restore the graceful elegance.

Some are fun and showy

Statement pieces that say,

“Today we play.”

They aren’t meant to last.

The luster fades

When the season turns.

Some are perfectly delightful

For a time,

But get lost along the way.

They just disappear from your life.

Earrings, friends and lovers.
