The ring is on my hand, And the wreath is on my brow;
Satin and jewels grand Are all at my command,
And I am happy now.

And my lord he loves me well; But, when first he breathed his vow,
I felt my bosom swell- For the words rang as a knell,
And the voice seemed his who fell In the battle down the dell,
And who is happy now.

But he spoke to re-assure me, And he kissed my pallid brow,
While a reverie came o’er me, And to the church-yard bore me,
And I sighed to him before me, Thinking him dead D’Elormie,
“Oh, I am happy now!”

And thus the words were spoken, And this the plighted vow,
And, though my faith be broken, And, though my heart be broken,
Here is a ring, as token
That I am happy now!

Would God I could awaken! For I dream I know not how!
And my soul is sorely shaken Lest an evil step be taken,-
Lest the dead who is forsaken
May not be happy now.

… Edgar Allan Poe

    Great photo. I love the color choices, varying textures and the play of light and shadow. It gives the photo a very moody feel.

  • Thankyou Dan… the textures there were so interesting
