A Ring Of Honor


A ring of humor, that I came to own
Along with it, a heart of stone
Given with love, accepted with a smile
Only to have it last, just for a while
It was to be, the one true ring
And that it was, such a painful sting
A ring of humor that I come to posses
A ring to her, worth less and less
My hopes and dreams, tide to a ring
But now it is, such a worthless thing
When you were picked, I was not
When she said yes, she had forgot
That another heart, was in her way
Love you she said, still every day
A kiss for him and a kiss for you
A kiss from love, I thought I knew
A ring of humor, oh so very round
A deserving fate, perhaps was found
A ring of humor, now found with me
Now a painful lesson, for me to see

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
