Изумруд зеленоокий,
Цветом сочный и глубокий,
Восхитительный и скромный
- Не бывает он огромный,
Но, не мал и не велик,
Он отбрасывает блик.
Сохраняя в себе тайны
Жизни каменной событий,
Наблюдательному взору -
Дарит радости открытий.
А умело обработан,
Обрамлён в златой каркас
- Сочной зеленью своею
Он бодрит, и тешит глаз.
