The Promise - a tribute to Mr P



It's time for the 2nd Annual Bloggirl Engagement Ring Fashion Show.

As the advert says, three stones...one for the past, one for the present and one for our future, my love. You have been my magnetic North since the age of 11 and my fervent wish is to always be captivated and yet comforted by you.

To paraphrase W H Auden,

He is my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever; I was not wrong.

How beautiful - I love the meaning behind the 3 stones. The poem says so much for just a few lines.

I love that poem, but it's good to hear it with the positive twist you've given it.

Beautiful poem. I'm not familiar with the original, but this one gets my lip aquiver. I love the symbolism of your ring.

And the ring is gorgeous.

Of course, I am so twisted that the poem is called "Funeral Blues" and it is famously used as the eulogy in "Four Weddings and a Funeral"!

The pic is the catalogue pic from the jeweller's website as I did not want to show my fat little fingers! Nine years later, it is not quite so sparkly in real life. I still love it though.

BTW, Mr P and I have not been together like THAT since I was 11. You know, just in case you were wondering, ahem. Only 13 years as a couple! Only!

Gorgeous ring, beautiful take on the poem, and wow - you've known each other since age 11? I can't imagine the depth that must give your relationship. I'm awed.

Love the ring.
