A Diamond And A Lotus

A Diamond And A Lotus

1 min 178 1 min 178

The diamond stays one even if covered with dirt

The lotus blooms amid the pond full of squalor

Eagle soars high, what a sight when it flies


The diamond shines bright, let us rejoice in the light

The lotus blooms amid all the surrounding gloom

The flight of the eagle full of grace leaves not a trace


A rare carbon becomes a diamond

That is in the nature of things if you don’t mind

A thing of beauty, let not our prejudice make us go blind
