1204. A Million Little Diamonds
 
By Mary Frances Butts
 
 
A MILLION little diamonds
Twinkled on the trees;
And all the little maidens said:
“A jewel, if you please!”
But while they held their hands outstretched,        5
To catch the diamonds gay,
A million little sunbeams came,
And stole them all away.
