Riddle of an Oyster


Riddle of an Oyster

Silver as a seashell,
Round as the moon,
My outsides unassuming
but inside a craggy room.
That's where my beauty is, my beauty untold,
and what my insides hold.

Tina, I love it too. It's one of my favorite of her poems. She loves riddles--I think that comes from reading Tolkien.

Metaphor city! Nice work. She's no Bukowski, and thank God for that!

Leah said...

Aw, thanks guys. I'll pass the messages on to the Hedgehog. I'd gotten her permission to put her poem up.

Dorraine: welcome! thanks for stopping by. I'm very excited to read your book.

UB: haha! no Bukowski, you crack me up. I'll be expecting the angry poetry sometime around 15 years old...
