CROWN SONNET

 

Miss USA crown

CROWN

The sparkling jewels and gems reflecting light

In crowns of brightest gold of yellow-white

The value, none will know or choose to guess

For they but represent an honored guest

 

 

The Elders bow before the royal throne

In humble adoration they fall prone

They see your face and they are overcome

Your majesty- too great- they are undone

 

 

You give a crown of beauty for burnt ash

Compassion joined with love instead of trash

A garland for the victor in life’s race

In glory and in honor crowned in grace

 

 

I’ll stand before you Lord, and cast my crown

Your spotless bride, dressed in the wedding gown
