The Wedding Ring

Dress in modern pennants and precious stones,
We stand in blazing colors before a new road,
Where old virtues trodden down had wearily cross,
And ancient history left to us a fine wedge of gold.

To buy our wedding rings and proudly wear the emblem
Let time watch our hands go slender and voices stray,
Only at anniversary date to repeat our vows again,
Until age and love and romance has worn away.

With Love knots still tied strong around our fingers
The greatest element to binds our hearts together
In a flame sparkling memory; love reignited the fires,
With this wedding ring around your tender finger.

Let us live this magical hour to share the mystic power
A thing of solid beauty, pretty unique in its own entity,
And it gives Intoxicated worth of unbound pleasure.
Bounded by collected vows that will last until eternity.

When Satin white diamonds are set in curvy shape,
The transforming stars flashes on that inward eye,
With delightful sensation to fit the occasions made,
Rings are for engagements here and eternity in the sky.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
