Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

Wedding Ring


Love is a wedding ring,
a little band of gold I give to you
under the eyes of heaven
for now and evermore.
Our love can stretch vast distances
whenever we are apart
for within that wedding ring
you hold the essence of my heart.

    'I gave my love a ring that had no end' is a line from a song I used to sing called 'The Riddle Song'. The metaphor of the ring is a perfect symbol of unconditional love and till death us do part commitment. Your poem has stars in its eyes. Your wife is indeed a lucky woman. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
