In the realm of serpents, mysterious and grand,

There lies a marvel, a sight so unplanned,

Within the scales, a jewel, a sacred art,

The eye of a snake, a window to its heart.

Oh, the eye of a snake, a captivating gaze,

A prism of secrets, in a serpentine haze,

It glimmers with wisdom, deep and profound,

Reflecting the wonders of worlds unbound.

A serenade of colors, a kaleidoscope dream,

In hues of amber and emerald, a vibrant gleam,

Like liquid jewels, they shimmer and dance,

Enchanting all who dare cast but a glance.

Within that iris, a glimpse of ancient tales,

Whispered echoes of wisdom that never fails,

From time immemorial, it has borne witness,

To nature's truths, in every subtle caress.

In those depths, one finds a mesmerizing depth,

A labyrinth of mysteries, quietly kept,

A mirror of instincts, untamed and wild,

Yet, a gentle innocence that leaves one beguiled.

Oh, the eye of a snake, a window to its soul,

A silent storyteller, with tales untold,

It sees the world with an ancient knowing,

A testament to life's endless flowing.

Through jungles and deserts, across the land,

The eye of a snake watches, unwavering, grand,

A sentinel of nature's timeless design,

With a gaze that holds secrets, both yours and mine.

So let us marvel at this gift bestowed,

The eye of a snake, a treasure untold,

For in its depths, we find a glimpse of grace,

And the boundless wonders of nature's embrace.
