THE RING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Hold the trinket near thine eye
Last Line: Measures but a falling tear.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Jewelry & Jewelers; Love


HOLD the trinket near thine eye,
And it circles earth and sky;
Place it further, and behold!
But a finger's breadth of gold.

Thus our lives, beloved, lie
Ringed with love's fair boundary;
Place it further, and its sphere
Measures but a falling tear.
