Isherwood Diamonds

I have to admit that this week's entry may be wrong. That's right, I went out and said it but I've done my research and think I've solved this week's mystery. There's lots of signs around the Studios that even I don't know why it's there. But there are some that have answers to them that can be found somewhere on the Internet and this week's entry falls into that category. On the Streets of America, you may have noticed a sign for a diamonds store and like me, wondered why it's there.

As I understand it, the name for this sign is inspired by a poem, called "Diamonds Upon Her Pillow" by Del Isherwood. So as you may have figured it out, Imagineers combined the poet's name along with the poem and it's an instant sign. Below is the actual rather sad poem by Del Isherwood that talks about when one loves someone so dearly they will make excuses to hide behind the truth.

He gives her diamonds
kept within her pillow.

Those tiny drops of crystal
that tear her life apart.

Given in secret
late at night,
so no one else could hear.

She tries to make up reason,
for the burning sting of tears.

She Begs..
for the answers,
to understand.. the pain and fear,
he pushes her away...
and the tears come back,
like clouds to stay.

She wants to leave without the truth,
but it is much harder..
than it seems.

Someday she shall love
her hope and faith of dreams.

But she shall always remember,
the one she cannot forget.

The one who gave her diamonds,
that made her pillow wet.
