The Antique Pendant


Throughout ages, the old pendant traveled.

Proudly adorned by wedded maidens.

A timeless heirloom passed to hands of the befitting,

fulfilling its coveted role- “something old,something


A rich legacy of adornment to the familiar,

merely a hand-me-down to those less known,

to a skilled eyed, an exquisite collectible,

to a novice, a collectible, a mere sore sight to behold.

Worth its weight in gold- the sentiments of the old,

declaration of unworthiness-  among foolish young maidens.

The treasured pendant stored for generations-

has the distinction of honorable mention-

It connects young with old-

a gift of rarity and task undisputed.
