THE POSY RING, by             Poem Explanation         Poet's Biography
First Line: This on thy posy-ring I've writ
Last Line: And stayed, whose names hereon I've writ.
Subject(s): Faith; Love; Belief; Creed

THIS on thy posy-ring I've writ:
"True Love and Faith"
For, failing Love, Faith droops her head,
And lacking faith, why love is dead
And's but a wraith.
But Death is stingless where they've lit
And stayed, whose names hereon I've writ.
