Wrapped inside a hardened shell

An iridescent gem does dwell

Hidden deep, beneath the sea

Yet, not much larger than a pea

Begins, when oysters take offense

Triggering layers, of self defense

Fighting, to make its bed just right

As such, creates this luminous sight

Which sets a woman’s heart awhirl

Ah, the beauty, of a cultured pearl
