Victorian Cameo....Elemental Sonnet

How beauty changes thro'out the ages
Along with industry of the fashion trade
To keep within purse hard earned wages
Images in cameo's so widely displayed
A Victorian profile of beauty preserved
No more than a relic of the past deserved
Locket of gold graced with a curl of hair
Long since gone but forever remains there
Unforgotten love whose locks conserved
Framed within cameo remained unnerved
An elegant profile within an exquisite case
Still remains within a past relatives heart
A once victorian lady adorned in fine lace
Of which her predecessor shall never part.
