By those who in this month are born
No gem save garnet should be worn;
They will ensure you constancy,
True friendship and fidelity.
The February born will find
Sincerity and peace of mind-
Freedom from passion and from care
If they the amethyst will wear.
Who on this world of ours their eyes
In March first open shall be wise,
In days of peril firm and brave,
And wear a bloodstone to their grave.
Those who in April date their years
Diamonds should wear, lest bitter tears,
for vain repentance flow, this
Stone emblem of innocence is known
Who first beholds the light of day
In springs sweet flowery month of
May, and wears an emerald all their
Life shall have a loved and happy life.
who comes with summer to this
earth and owes to June their day
of birth, with ring of agate on
Their hand, can health, wealth,
And peace command.
The glowing ruby should adorn
Those who in warm July are born;
Thus will they be exempt and free
From loves doubts and anxiety.
Wear a moonstone or for thee
No conjugal felicity;
The August born with out this
Stone, tis said must live unloved
Those born when autumn leaves
Are rustling in Septembers breeze
A sapphire on their brow should bind,
T’will cure diseases of the mind.
October's child is born for woe,
and life’s vicissitudes must know
but lay an opal on their breast,
And hope will lull the woes to rest.
Who first comes to this world below
With dull Novembers fog and snow,
Should prize the topaz amber hue,
Emblem of friends and lovers true.
if cold December gave you birth,
the month of snow and ice and
mirth, Place on your hand a
Turquoise blue-success will bless
You if you do.
