Silver..... [various Uses Of The Word Silver; A Medium-Length Rhyming Poem] - Poem by Bri Edwards

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.

    Someone has not commented on this one yet. Oh dear, now I have. Silver is normally not limited to taking down vampires. It is often said that silver will also take down werewolves and keep demons at bay. That is why many churches have silver crosses in them. I hate to ruin this poem, but most bells are not made of silver. They are made of brass, iron or copper. (Report) Reply
