The Ring


A wary young man said, "I suppose, 
that this lady to whom I propose; 
a ring on her finger 
delight it will bring her.  
So, why does she want one in my nose?

    Enjoyed the humor...I sure that she will not want that ring in your nose..Thanks for stopping by..I looked up Shakespeare's Sonnet #12 since I had never read it before.Yes, some of my wording did resemble the poem and yes, one could read into my work a very deep meaning..Thanks for taking the time to see that.Sara
