Piedra de Ijada

Of the thousands that I have viewed

I’ve never met a specimen of nephrite,

Whether unworked, polished, carved,

Bookended, treed, or jeweled,

Ranging from all shades of green plus creamy white,

That I didn’t like.

Which only proves that it’s microcrystallinely unimaginabled

For me to become jaded about jade

However  it is displayed.
