Gold is your sister

Who surpasses you

In beauty and wealth,

Leaving you humble

And the better of the two.

For the humble give light

By candle at a dinner,

Or torch in a tunnel,

Or lantern in a garden.


Gold screams with its sparkle,

But yellow-orange whispers with its glow.

Whispers send chills down your spine,

But fill your heart with warmth.
