In various shapes and brands,
In different colours and bands,
The seashells take a valuable stand.
They are exo – skeletons of invertebrates,
Gathered by collectors who are vertebrates,
Shell clubs or societies review the affiliates,
Exhibit them in a museum to celebrate.
The shanka is a sacred symbol of Vishnu in Hinduism,
The chank plays an important role in Buddhism,
Scallop shell is the symbol of Saint James in Christianism,
Rendering a gracious significance to spiritualism.
Seashells were used as currency money
They were deployed as tools shiny,
They served as musical instruments windy,
Shell necklaces were found in Stone Age,
Shells drilled become beads at this stage,
Rings ,combs ,brooches and badges ,
Are artfully done with a precision gauge.
Worthiness lies not in expensive treats,
Shells are skeleton of the dead retreats,
Some are costlier than diamond beats,
Though found in random at the shore seats.
