It was lovely just the way it was, The onyx in the ore; A luminescent gem of gold That glistens from the core. But caring hands took hold the stone, Removing parts impure; Enhanced the luster of the gem, Compounded its allure. Until, at length, the polished stone Appeared to be afire; Fit to be a crowning jewel Atop a temple spire. She was lovely just the way she was, The woman in her youth; Who, on her knees, approached the Lord Inquiring after truth. The Master worked His wondrous ways, He knew the heart within; And helped her master trying goals That purify the gem. And now, at length, her polished soul With Spirit seems afire; Soon to be a crowning jewel Beneath a temple spire.
