The Girl

Long ago there was a girl
Who carried with her a single pearl
From town to town she roamed in awe
Always with an open jaw

She forgot about the hours
As she climbed among the towers
And stared into the stars
The night turned to day
She even caught a glimpse of Mars

She watched a blue jay
'Till it began to fly away
So she stood, once more, to go
But something stopped her
Something was watching her

Alas, it was only a doe
Such utter sadness was in those eyes
She couldn't lift her feet to rise
They stared at each other, for a while

Neither stirred a bit
Then quite without a fit,
The girl began to reach for it
Slowly, carefully, the girl got up

She reached for what seemed a mile
Her hand curled into a cup
And in the center, shined the pearl
Offered from, such a girl
