Mighty Marbles Poem  
   

By R. Renée Bembry

 

Marbles come in many shiny colors and sizes; plus they have all kinds of intricate decorations from solids, to crystals, to swirls. Some marble games have been around for centuries while others have sprung up in recent times. Finding a place to play marbles should coincide with the type of marble game players have in mind. Some outdoor marble games, with the proper setup, can be played indoors as well. This marble poem talks about the beauty marbles possess as well as how much enjoyment they bring their owners.

 

Mighty Marbles Poem

Smooth between your fingers


Cool atop your palms

Examining their beauty

Makes you relaxed and calm


Formed from fevered sand glass

 

These glistening little spheres

 

Sparkle when you roll em

 

Like crystal chandeliers

 

 

Wrap em with your pointer

 

Curving strong and tight

 

Shoot em with your thumbnail

 

Flicking keratin might


 

Playing games with marbles

Is never-ending fun

On rainy days and Mondays

Beneath bright burning suns


 

Spread about in circles

 

Etched deep in dirty dirt

 

Colorizing ground like

 

Polka dots speck shirts

 


Crystal clears and solids

 

Spiraled cores galore

 

Sing along the wood when

 

Marbles spin cross a floor



They jiggle in your pocket


Bust out from paper bags

Oh when you store your marbles

Watch out for things that crack!

Antique Marble Collecting


Antique marble collecting may

be one of most fascinating types

of hobbies there is.

The colorful 5/16 to 2 ½

inch light catching glass or stone

spheres are awe-inspiring.

They’re great for game-play

gently if you must and

for showcasing.

whether as a one time deal, or

thing you might want to do is...
