  1. A Diamond

    by William Henry Venable

    Upon the breast of senseless earth
    This precious sparkling stone,
    A jewel of Golconda's worth,
    In sovran beauty shone.

    My lady for a moment bore
    The gem upon her brow,
    A moment on her bosom wore:—
    'Tis worth the Orient now.

  2. Diamonds

    by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    The tears of fallen women turned to ice
    By man's cold pity for repentant vice.
