‘Mudlarker’s Jewel’ and other poems

By: Mary Bone

Mudlarker’s Jewel

I was the mudlarker’s jewel,
washed in from the sea.
You put me on a pedestal
for all the world to see.
Of all the trinkets you found,
I didn’t have the glam and glitter,
until you washed off the mud.


Shattered Dreams

I never thought it would be easy,
to keep on loving you.
My stomach was so queasy,
when you said we were through.
My heart began to patter,
Nearly skipping a beat,
As my dreams began to shatter
and fall around my feet.
The good times we had,
must have been an illusion,
because now I’m so sad,
and filled with confusion.
