ENOUGH - a short verse by Audrey Austin

If I could but extend my hand
Into the darkest depths of night
Entwine my fingers 'round a star
Present to you this dazzling sight
It would not be enough
If I could gather all the jewels
Precious ribbons for your hair
Ruby, silver, gold, and pearl
Pick them up and place them there
It would not be enough.
