I found this in High School and liked it very much. I recently found it again and wanted to share it with you.
The Legend of the Wedding Band
"In a fair and far off country many centuries ago, a kind young
King was married to a princess he loved so.
Together they lived happily until one day
Beauty's worst enemy would force the King to travel far away.
One night before he left, as he walked throughout the palace grounds,
He tossed into a moonlit pool some pebbles that he had found.
As the lovely ripples widened from where the little pebbles fell;
The King stood thinking quietly of the wife he loved so well.
And remembering the next day the surface he had seen,
He had a gold ring made to fit the finger of the Queen.
"There is no Ending or Beginning to the circle on this band,"
The King said to his wife, as he slipped it on her hand.
"And that's why I have chosen this golden ring
To be a pledge to you that my love will last through all Eternity."
And so sinse then a gold ring has been the symbol
Of beauty, devotion, and the endlessness of Love.
May all the Love and Happiness you two have found together,
Like the circle of the wedding band, go on and on forever."
