Pearl, June’s birthstone, is honored in poetry.

http://La Peregrina (”Pilgrim”): found at Pearl Islands, Gulf of Panama, worn by European royalty, gifted to Elizabeth Taylor by Richard Burton on Valentine’s Day 1969, sold for $11,842,500 at auction of Elizabeth’s jewelry collection in December 2011 (leroyspinkfist.blogspot)


Purity’s emblem,

Our Lady Mary’s symbol:

June’s pearl of great price.


Margarita pearls,

Rare yellow iridescence:

Conquistadors’ trove.


Wisdom’s talisman,

Guarded by China’s dragons:

Innocent luster.

    Stessily, The comfy-cosy cottage along the River Tay looks an ideal spot, what with access to spectacular views and stunning pearl finds.
    Respectfully, and with many thanks for sharing, Derdriu
