    Default The Litany of the Jewels (pages 20 and 21)

    What are the treasures the Fair Folk bring?
    Easily named and lovingly told:
    Fairies of England proudly bear
    Garnet, crown-jewel of their Queen.
    Brilliant as eyes if the Celtic folk,
    Cold morning green, their Emerald.
    The Hadas of Iberia:
    Sapphire, shy as a wild field flower.
    Turquoise the Fays of France keep: stone
    Rare as a blue midsummer's day.
    Dwarves' treasure: purple Amethyst,
    Imperial star of Germany.
    The Opal of the Lowland Gnomes:
    A cloud of shining, shifting smoke.
    A Topaz is the Russian Prize:
    The royalty sunstone, frozen fire.
    Peridot of old Italy:
    Antique, and olivine, and rich.
    The Ruby out of Araby:
    Scarlet desert sky at dawn.
    Africa's Diamond, earth born star,
    Bright harvest of the midnight rock.
    The Nymphs of Hellas cherish sweet
    Aquamarine, spring-water clear.
    Far from Cathay, the dragon's Pearl:
    Chaste, perfect as the silver moon.
    Each jewel in its weird-wrought casque,
    Gift of the Viking craftsmen Elves.
    Wonder and glory thirteen-fold:
    These are the treasures the Fair Folk bring.

    B&P, you think we'll ever find one of these?

    Yes -- even though for health and finance reasons I am really putting the "Armchair" part into Treasure Hunting! But no retrievals. Not enough endurance at this point.
