As if a ring. . .

As if a ring. . .

As if a ring
         could open a heart
or win a hand
         no matter the size
of the diamond
         the number of gems

Love is the precious stone
         the many facets of which
light glows within
         love that girdles the couple
love that creates
         a homely pavilion
of eternal dwelling
         living breathing
molecular love
         so atomically bonded
that it can never
         be sundered
love that can cut its way
         through all eternity

As if a ring. . . !

John Lyons
