Silver..... [Various Uses Of The Word Silver; A Medium-Length Rhyming Poem]


Silver (well more like gray) , and long, is what my hair’s become,
and in a silver sauce pan, filled with boiling rice, I see a patch of scum.
Silver bells are “ringing” in a Christmas holiday season song,
and Silver’s the medal won by the Olympic weight lifter, who is second-most strong.

A silver wedding anniversary is one I’ve not reached (yet) , though I worked that long at one job,
and silver is a metal sometimes used, to create a fancy pocket watch fob.
Silverware is what I usually use to eat my meal, but my wife sometimes uses chopsticks,
and a silver bullet may be used to keep a vampire.....from performing HER tricks.

A Silver Maple is an attractive tree with leaf parts more-narrow than some,
and sometimes a wealthy person is born with a “silver spoon in his mouth”; not so with a bum.
Silver was the name of The Lone Ranger’s TV horse when I was a kid,
and silver, and gold, and jewels are among the treasures pirates sometimes hid.

“Silver” has filled many a decayed hole, in many a dental patient’s teeth,
and mercury is the silvery liquid metal in a thermometer, which goes underneath....(a tongue) .
A silver-tongued orator (speaking of tongues) is one who can make a convincing speech,
and in an old song is the “silvery moon”, which to me is out of reach.

I could go on about a Silver Certificate, now called a “Federal Reserve Note”,
but my ship is sailing to a silver strand, and I don’t want.....to miss the boat.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
