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

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
