The Wedding Ring Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 4

Sponsored Links

I pawned my sick wife's wedding ring,

To drink and make myself a beast.

I got the most that it would bring,

Of golden coins the very least.

With stealth into her room I crept

And stole it from her as she slept.

I do not think that she will know,

As in its place I left a band

Of brass that has a brighter glow

And gleamed upon her withered hand.

I do not think that she can tell

The change - she does not see too well.

Pray God, she doesn't find me out.

I'd rather far I would be dead.

Yet yesterday she seemed to doubt,

And looking at me long she said:

"My finger must have shrunk, because

My ring seems bigger than it was."

She gazed at it so wistfully,

And one big tear rolled down her cheek.

Said she: "You'll bury it with me . . ."

I was so moved I could not speak.

Oh wretched me! How whisky can

Bring out the devil in a man!"

And yet I know she loves me still,

As on the morn that we were wed;

And darkly guess I also will

Be doomed the day that she is dead.

And yet I swear, before she's gone,

I will retrieve her ring from pawn.

I'll get it though I have to steal,

Then when to ease her bitter pain

They give her sleep oh I will feel

Her hand and slip it on again;

Through tears her wasted face I'll see,

And pray to God: "Oh pity me!"
