    With unicorns and roses
    All things fine to hold
    My gifts to you my sweetest love
    Are worth their weight in gold

    You haven't seen my gifts my love
    Was his sad reply
    For all things have a purpose
    From weeds to dragonflies
    `````

    Loved those stanzas. This poem held a beautiful message to all of us! Amazing write. 5/5.

    This poem is really beautiful. The imagery and word choices are awesome.

    Then I gave a hummingbird
    With finest fairy wings
    His gift to me a dragonfly
    The ugliest of things

    How many times we don't stop to see things as they really are.
    This really makes you stop and think.

    You haven't seen my gifts my love
    Was his sad reply
    For all things have a purpose
    From weeds to dragonflies

    To measure true love's value
    With gold to gauge it's worth
    You overlook the beauty
    Held by everything at birth

    I loved these last two stanzas. Because the smallest of things in life sometimes are the best. The beauty from within is where you will find your happiness. What a wonderful lesson to leave for your children.
    Excellent job!
    Love Cindy

    Vivid imagery and a powerful message. Love is all that matters and true beauty is only skin deep. The flow was excellent and the poem was wonderful from beginning to end.

    Oh, how utterly amazing! Such a wonderful lesson for everyone. I love the messages this contains, from not judging people/things from their appearance or first impression, to realizing that everyone and everything has a purpose for its existence. Self-worth is just as important to accept as the worth of others.

    The flow was magnificent and the comparisons were simple enough for the young'uns to understand and still deep enough to not bore the adults.

    Truly inspiring!

    Thanks for this reminder that we must look deeper than the surface!

    I think this is not only a really beautiful piece of literature, but you have written it perfectly for your target audience. It's a no nonsense poem that can appeal to everybody at a base level. Just reading it makes you think of childhood as it was and how it should be, really brings the kid in me out.

    I love the message behind the writing, beauty is not just skin deep, and don't judge something from first glance.

    A really nice poem with a wonderful message.

    Wow, this was an amazing poem... I hope people can learn of this poem. Poems aren't meant to be shallow, and literal.. This is a great example, it leaves you wondering until the very end where it captures you.

    I take off my hat to you, great job, keep up the good work
