From the Earth, deep underground
Far away from sunlight’s view
Fire and dust are tightly wound
Fiercely cleave, perforce ensue

Born by magic quite profound
Bursting skyward through the air
Beaming as they reach the ground
Beautiful, they are; so rare!

And like diamonds, we all shine
Able, strong; a true mystique
Arched by nature’s grand design
Ardent, faceted, unique!
