This poem was written collaboratively by me and a friend of mine. First line was his, next was mine, and so on. You can check out his blog at; https://markswiftnexus.blogspot.com/
Among seas and stars, and across the earth,
Strung by ropes, an essence of worth,
Lies a treasure, beyond any other,
Measured in the love of a mother,
That those around may feel its pulse,
Through thorned crowns, it arose.
