    A Jet Ring Sent

    by John Donne

    THOU art not so black as my heart,
    Nor half so brittle as her heart, thou art ;
    What would'st thou say ? shall both our properties by thee be spoke,
    —Nothing more endless, nothing sooner broke?

    Marriage rings are not of this stuff ;
    Oh, why should ought less precious, or less tough
    Figure our loves ? except in thy name thou have bid it say,
    "—I'm cheap, and nought but fashion ; fling me away."

    Yet stay with me since thou art come,
    Circle this finger's top, which didst her thumb ;
    Be justly proud, and gladly safe, that thou dost dwell with me ;
    She that, O ! broke her faith, would soon break thee.
