Beneath my feet

A purling stream

Ran glittering in

The noontide beam.

I turned me round to view

The lovely rural scene;

And, just at hand, I spied

A cottage on the green.

From “Cottage Poems” Patrick Bronte (1777-1861)

A Rest by the Way Charles James Adams (1859-1931)

Topaz comes from the Greek word topazos meaning ‘to seek’ while the pink radiance has of long time been thought of as drawing Divine potency in matters of the heart.
