TITLE: Pearls of Great Price
By Mike Richardson

This was written in recognition of the two Moravian missionaries who sold themselves into slavery in order to reach those who worked on the plantations in the W Indies. Vermeer was active sixty or so years earlier and his subject was quite possibly from a moravian community.
When Vermeer caught that most precious pearl
Sitting on the ear
Of that chaste young girl
Like a tear
Suspended.
He did not know
That pearls of greater price
Would later be heralding in
Human sacrifice, lives to plantations
Two men would be wept over,
Off to the nations,
As they stood quayside
Ready to leave behind
Loved ones, jobs, homes.
Those pearl drop tears
More precious than Vermeer’s
Fall on a canvas of light
To the refrain from those who cried
“That the lamb who had died
Will receive the reward
Of his sufferings”
