Mighty Marbles Poem How to Play Marbles Antique Marble Collecting

Smooth between your fingers
Cool atop your palms
Examining their beauty
Makes you relaxed and calm

Formed from fevered sand glass
These glistening little spheres
Sparkle when you roll em
Like crystal chandeliers

Wrap em with your pointer
Curving strong and tight
Shoot em with your thumbnail
Flicking keratin might

Playing games with marbles
Is never-ending fun
On rainy days and Mondays
Beneath bright burning suns

Spread about in circles
Etched deep in dirty dirt
Colorizing ground like
Polka dots speck shirts

Crystal clears and solids
Spiraled cores galore
Sing along the wood when
Marbles spin cross a floor

They jiggle in your pocket
Bust out from paper bags
Oh when you store your marbles
Watch out for things that crack!
