A pantoum written for a test writing job & rejected as "too difficult a form..."
Diamond castles pointing tower-turrets to the skies,
Crafted glass cut carefully to capture every glow.
Windows, spires, staircases, all shining, crystallized;
Reflecting brilliance of a land we see but never know.

Crafted glass cut carefully to capture every glow;
Sparkling under starlit skies - a gift from mother moon;
Reflecting brilliance of a land we see but never know;
Mirroring her midnight eyes which blink and close too soon.

Sparkling under starlit skies - a gift from mother moon
Presented on an evening in a century of old:
Mirroring her midnight eyes which blink and close too soon:
Crystal jewels of iceberg castles, clear and clean and cold.

Presented on an evening in a century of old:
Windows, spires, staircases, all shining, crystallized;
Gemstone jewels of iceberg castles, clear and clean and cold
Diamond castles pointing tower-turrets to the skies.
