If it doesn't rhyme (or doesn't try), it won't get answered - I won't reply.

Each of three women, by each one man they love,
is observed with great dismay - but let unfold,
what connects these consequential sorrows of,
our regretful gents; Thomas, Richard, and Harold?

Are T, R, and H real people, or fake?
Did you make this thing up, or'd they really partake?
Does each man love a different woman? The same?
(If the former is true, may we give them a name?)

None of these gentlemen (nor their women) are real,
but their stories are not from my own imagination set.
Each a different woman loved - and for convenience will,
they henceforth be known as Tess, Rachael, and Harriet.

Was it something from their past which made the women all downcast?
In other words, were they feeling fine until a sad memory came to mind?
I'll ask then if the women are kin, and same question follows for the men.
So was it the women who, at first, were vexed, and then the men felt this way next?

Neither Tess, Rachael, nor Harriet a sad memory did recall,
and, apart from their partners, none of our six knew of each other at all.

So do these gents hold any sort of grudge
Against their ladies, may the case such be?
And, if so, can we tell or guess or judge
If reason is the same for all the three?

Is danger lurking,
love of the wrong slurking;
Is there unrequited love for one or more,
And does this make them sore.

There's "consequential sorrows," so have any of them died?
(That's men as well as women.) Has a wedding knot been tied?
Oh: any of these people, did another get the better of?
(That's "kill.") Is love reciprocated, Tom to Tess, et cetera?

No grudges held, yet Richard alone by his girl did suffer slight,
as are Thomas and Harold for different reasons in respective plight.

Thomas did deftly danger miss,
and unrequited love does indeed exist;
first one way then in the other's,
for an unfortunate pair of lovers.

Only one of our six has, regrettably, lost their life,
And only one of our men taken their women for a wife.
None have been murdered 'cept Thomas' love for Tess,
and as for 'do all living others love their other?' Yes.

To be sure of whom to whom; it is Thomas to Tess you can bet,
as is it poor Richard to Rachel and Harold to dearest Harriet.

Is the dead one a man? Woman? H, R, or T?
Did they die accidentally? Naturally?
And another key question: When push comes to shove,
Was the death someone's fault? Of the dead one? Their love?

By the way, is a seventh as-yet-unknown person
Involved in this tale? Did he make their fates worsen?

Our dead individual is the young woman, H. - Harriet.
Some say she died of a broken heart, yet,
upon some meticulous examination of the evidence, one ought'a
conclude it probably had something to do with all that water.
Harriet would to herself attribute the full blame,
but poor Harold sees himself deserving all the same.

There is a seventh who plays a part,
in affecting the course of one man's heart.
Who without, a marriage there'd surely be,
but you are mistaken to assume a 'he'.

Were Harriet's lungs with water filled
i.e. drowned, and thus was killed?
Did Harold remain upon dry land
(so to say) and not give her a hand?
Or was his part more indirect?
(Sorry the rhyme is not perfect.)

You are correct in thinking Harriet drowned,
and that Harold stayed on solid ground,
but to suggest he let her die is unfound,
for when she died, there was no one else around!

Did she drown on her own in a body of water?
Did she fall off a vessel, with no one to spot her?
The seventh: a "she," then? A lover of any-
one else in the puzzle? Can we call her "Jenny"?

Harriet drowned alone in a river by moonlight,
but did not fall from any vessel that night.
The seventh, Jenny, though not a lover,
does never'less feel love towards one of our other.

You said that Jenny, as the future mom
-in-law, does certainly like Tom.
Perhaps dear Tess their relationship saw
As mom-in-love, rather than mom-in-law?

I have more questions to be answered still:
Is any of them led by evil will?
Or is a misunderstanding taking place?
Is time relevant? Age? Professions? Space?

Tess did not perceive 'tween her selection,
and her mother, Jenny, misplaced affection.
She saw acceptance in both their faces,
and naught more, as indeed the case is.

There is no evil, no real malevolence,
no misunderstandings have taken place.
Age, you'll find, has no relevance,
neither do professions, time, or space.

Did Jenny's dream come true at once
At Tom's and Tess's wedding did she dance?
And, to Jenny's pleasure or her regret
Is there relevant Tess's dad?
Do Tom's parents have a role to do
In the wedding or misfortune of these two?
Could any of our heros ever be
Affected otherwise than H-H, R-R and T-T?

Much to her poor mother's distress,
there was no wedding of Thomas and Tess.
Tess' dad was out the picture long ago,
for reasons that we need not know.
Thomas' parents are alive and well,
but have no part in this story to tell.
Your final question is not clear,
perhaps you could elaborate here?

So there‘s no important number eight
To add to this conundrum more weight?
Was Harriet alone indeed,
Or was it Harold who did lead
Her to the waves so cold - and sigh,
Knowing that his love has to die?

There is no eighth important person to discover,
those relevant are only the couples and Tess' mother.
Your idea that Harriet's death should such be fated,
is quite poetic but that she died alone was clearly stated.

You are correct in your suppositions - there is no loss,
in assuming our couples' stories have and will never cross.

Though it would explain why a gent is so dejected,
no one has been unfaithful or is even thus suspected.

All of our seven are good at heart,
nevertheless lives do come apart.

Was there a common predicament,
set off by some particular incident,
which for some reason drew the attention
of each couple that is in mention?

Was one or more persons experiencing the blues
due to delivery of certain news?

Would Thomas, Richard and Harold all say
that they became sorrowful in the same way?

And would it be a common mess
described by Rachel, Harriet and Tess?

Hang on - you said that now all our males are
Deceived by their mates - or do I err so far?

And is it true, although this might feel sore,
That Thomas does not love Tess any more?

If so, was it because of Jenny,
and if not, is there amongst them any
One who caused a trouble between any pair,
Or crosswise? Please tell us fair and square.

Some of these questions aren't clear and need be explained,
or otherwise refer to that that has already been ascertained.
Regardless, in answering, I shall have a go,
by working in the relevant information below.
For to help you, from the above verses, clues unwrap,
I shall compile in colour and rhyme, a full
RECAP:

The task is to unravel three distinct tales,
that share in common: a pairing - of which the males,
whilst observing their female other, become quite upset,
to the point of suffering some form of deep regret.
All three pairs differ in their actions for the causation,
and their later reactions to this moment of observation.
Then, as per the initial post, there is one final link involved,
that will be more easily determined given these three stories solved.

Thomas and Tess were soon to marry,
and sought the approval of Tess' mother.
Thomas did some unknown danger parry,
and poor Tess, he does no longer love her.
Jenny, in this change of heart, has a role,
but is not to blame and 'twas not her goal.


Richard and Rachael we know nothing about.
There there is still everything to figure out.


Harold and Harriet's story has her deciding,
upon a river to commit suicide in.
Harold, upon hearing of her death does give pause,
for the consideration that he may be somehow a cause.


Finally, though no deception or unfaithfulness,
nor sad memories or further deaths, there is;
an unidentified married couple situation,
and some unrequited love complication...

it was this heartache that led to Harriet's fatal decision.

Harold does love Harriet, as previously said,
and Harriet did love Harold it is true,
but still she died due to love unrequited,
and Harold's love for her is unrequited too.

All of our men feel some regret.
Thomas is moved on from Tess.
Richard is still quite upset,
as is Harold as you can guess.

Richard confronted Rachael to somewhat ease his pain,
Thomas cut his losses and by Tess was never seen again,
and Harold still visits Harriet by moon from wax to wane.

Did any strong emotions grow
Towards someone else than a partner, though?
Do all three stories - to regret, to die, to marry
Are to each other contemporary?
If not, what was the sequence of the stories?
And what location was the witness of sorrow memories?

Harold did many other women love, charm, and kiss,
but none towards did Harriet feel any bitterness.

All three stories are independent in time and space,
but do focus on the variables such as the place,
at which each woman failed to see their man's face...
for here's a CLUE, I'll give just one,

observation was only one way done.

This is so tricky, Liquizt, come on,
Don't they have anything in common?
You said each one knows only t'other

Who knows Tess, Thomas - and that's it?

Wait, a post-scriptum - 't seems you took
Your inspiration in a book,
A film, a play - in short, creation
Of someone else's imagination?

Recall that these three stories do not overlap,
colour code your questions as per the recap.
Determine the where of when each woman was seen.
Here are some hints so you don't think me mean.

From someone else's imagination,
I did indeed draw my inspiration,
but if from a book you think I've taken,
or a film or play; you are mistaken.

Does this puzzle take its theme
From a comic or a video game?
Did the stories bad final deserve
Cause women with other men were observed?
Was any woman observed where she should
Not be, despite of her intentions good?

Not from a comic or game was this birthed.
No woman with another man was observed.
Rachael was indeed by Richard seen,
in a place where she should not have been,
or rather, to answer with a bit more care,
it is important what she was doing there.

Not a child, but man or woman it matters not.
and no other people are relevant to the what,
of what occurred there. Though in what you suspect,

Did Rachael wear the item(s) or keep them in hand
What caused Richard to misunderstand
Her purpose and take it for nothing good?
Was the item: drees, suit, coat or a bathing suit?
Indoors or outdoors did happen this scene wild?
If indoors, was it Rachael's own home site?

The items were not jewelery,
as in my next quatrain you'll see.


Rachael's items were a hat and dress, and
her intent, Richard did not misunderstand.
Wearing them both, she was indoors seen,
but home is not the location of this scene.

This hat and dress are for a special case,
and Richard was offended by time, not place.

She was out but not outside when she wore it,
but never'less in public when Richard saw it.
In a business yes, one of good repute;
a shop, with which Richard has no dispute.

When Richard's eye Rachael caught,
Has the dress been just newly bought?
Was the dress meant - just by the way
For the funeral or holiday?
Is it true, that Rich's regret grow

Spending that time in the shopping place,
In the special dress and smile on her face?

Richard silently departed but at home Rachael caught,
and confronted, regarding the dress for a funeral bought.
The new dress and hat possessed quite some style;
and his woes increased for, when bought, she did smile.

Is it important who's the deceased?

There is no deceased; FA!
Before proceeding in dismay,
best clear this right away...

For whom the funeral is for,
Rachael would most her heart pour,
as she does this person adore,
and will hate to see them nevermore.

Richard on the other hand, won't cry,
at this funeral, nor will he try!
He'll make no effort to say goodbye,
with each eulogy he won't blink an eye.

Rachael nevertheless will be of all,
those attending, the least banal;
best dressed at both wake and funeral!


Richard did have cause to doubt,
her grief was what it was all about.
For mourning her black dress was fit,
and would make no mockery of it.

For Richard's own funeral, yes,
he did see his wife buy her dress!
This is the last relevant detail,

The moments of observation of the others are yet,

& Thomas of Tess and what caused his heart to change.

To Thomas and his couple, Tess.
So something we yet ignore
Caused Thomas to feel so sore
That Tess was by him quickly left,
Of his love suddenly bereft.

Was it Tess who did something wrong?
Or was it Jenny, Tess's mother?
Or something different altogether?

Did Tom both these women spy
Only with a naked eye?
Or did he see his little pet
On a camera, through the net?
And is it relevant at all
How he saw things behind the wall?
Speaking of naked, did he see
Some sort of obscenity?
What were his feelings when he saw
His future wife and mom-in-law?
Was it rage? Surprise? Jealousy?
And did he both these women see
Or hear them too? And were they do-o-ing
A rare, or an ordinary thing?

Through window pane and own eyes he did see
his then future wife behaving repugnantly.
He was shocked by what he saw and heard,
but it's not necessary to discover word for word,
what was said. Only the context is relevant to us,
and the act was not so uncommon to make a fuss.

Thomas was only by the actions of Tess appalled,

Though she had not lied to him... do not mistake,

Among the words said by our Tess,
was: "I don't love Thomas" or "I love him less"?

Did the sentence by Tess said
Cause Thomas to be afraid
That Tess would deliberately contrive
And Thomas of something deprive?

Her words were of Thomas only peripherally,
and would not affect their future, but if fully,
appreciated they implied quite emphatically,
Tess' behaviour might change dramatically,
towards him once wed (and was so mental he,
could not imagine how she would be parentally)!
They did not her opinion on children avouch any,
nor weather; for they were for and about Jenny.

'Twas not scheming he heard as he peered:
'twas no less than her true nature he feared!

On the contrary, did Tess say
That she'll leave Jenny on her way
All alone, cause after marriage
She won't be needed in Tess' carriage?
Or did Tess just express her mind,
about how marriage does she find,
how role of wife she understands,
or when the marriage in fact ends?

None of these things by Tess were said.
This approach is no good, try instead,
to see how Thomas as witness took stead.

Does the opinion of our friend Tom
Towards his future in-law-mom
Have a thing to do with his woe,
His fear of what he did know?

For example, did what Tessie said
Fill dear Thomas with dread
That she'd turn into her mother,
Who he despised like no other?

Was in Tom's position something strange?
Was it Tess who did somehow arrange
That he was where he was? Was he in danger?
Did Tess towards him act rather as a stranger
Than as a loving wife? Did he think it's rare
That she behaved as if she did not care?

The future? The present? Or the past?
Or was she speaking of a plan

Or to her mom did she reveal
Somthing what already became real?
Or her harsh words somehow implied

Thomas, by own will and chance came by Tess' window,
He'd heard her voice but what he'd hear he did not know.
He had come for reason but to hear and see her is not so.


Thomas was afraid Tess would turn his life rotten.
Not death, but worse! She would be best forgotten.

Yes, Tess hurt her mother but,
only with words did she cut.

And most certainly yes,
she did cause Jenny stress.

The object, and I'm sure you'll get this quick,
belonging to Thomas, was a costly stick.
The only remaining detail now for this pair,
is why was Thomas looking for it there?


Then last there is the story of our remaining couple dear;
Harriet and Harold. To RECAP I'll quote some verses here:

"Richard confronted Rachael to somewhat ease his pain,
Thomas cut his losses and by Tess was never seen again,
and Harold still visits Harriet by moon from wax to wane."

"Harold and Harriet's story has her deciding,
upon a river to commit suicide in.
Harold, upon hearing of her death does give pause,
for the consideration that he may be somehow a cause."

"Harold does love Harriet, as previously said,
and Harriet did love Harold it is true,
but still she died due to love unrequited,
and Harold's love for her is unrequited too."

A costly stick - let's focus on:
a magic wand? a mobile phone?
a fishing rod? remote control?
A key? a battery? Is it close at all?
Did he see Tess or Jenny posses it? use it?
Did he ask to get it back and she refuse it?

The stick is a stick,
but a nice one at that,
the kind that you'd pick,
to go with a smart hat.

Neither Tess nor Jenny were aware,
that Thomas' stick was with them there.

Did Thomas need the stick to walk?
Would any object left behind
Cause him unseen to hear them talk
And overhear Tess's words unkind?

Also I want to make a guess
If whatever was said by Tess
was related only to her parent,
but what she said was so aberrant
that Tom just by association
Thought it would be his condemnation
to marry Tess? Did she threaten
Her mother to be strongly beaten,
Or to be deprived of her money?
And speaking of threat - was there any?
Did Thomas feel a greater danger
To his body, soul, or his manger?

It was a walking stick or cane he left behind,
though any object left would've had him find,
what was truly on his betrothed's mind.

No threat was made, only harsh criticism,
of something Jenny had done. And poor gentle,
Thomas' only fear was that she'd be as with him,
as she was with Jenny; spoilt and judgmental.

You are correct; he'd only shortly before departed,
and caught Tess as she her mother reprimanded,
for something Jenny had apparently said in his presence;
a remark to which it seems only Tess had took offense.

So Harold is a local ladies' man,
And Harriet, a shy grey mouse,
realizes that there's no way that she can
Have him as her husband in her house?

Or she sees another woman with Harry,
perhaps he has aired his intentions to marry,
so Harriet does not longer tarry,
And does something which is so scary?

You are correct, deducing why;
for Harriet, Harold had no eye,
she was too timid, quiet, shy.
For other girls he passed her by,
Until the day she'd no longer try,
and to riverbed would go to lie.

Though for her life he did cry,
and never wished to say goodbye,
he was not there to see her die.

Did Harold love her since they first met,
Or only after he saw her dead?
Or in between that moment came
When he would love to her proclaim?

To be his woman in good and bad deed

So, Playboy Harold many times met
Local shy mouse, poor Harriet.
He fell in love, as time went by
didn't know when, didn't know why.
And Harriet loved him all along,
wished them the end as in love song.
To struggle for him she was too shy,
She felt upset and that is why
She took her steps to the riverbed.
Then Harold seeked his dear Harriet
To proclaim his love eternal and strong
From then it did not take too long.
He found her body in the water cold
So they could not with another grow old.
Is it a story complete and whole?
Or is it not on right track at all?

Almost complete, almost all correct,
there is one small detail that has escaped you. Yet,
I am most impressed with your summary verse,
that to delay a spoiler for this detail is an undue curse;
Harold did not Harriet from the riverbed save;
his upsetting observation is made at her grave.


Also undiscovered thus far, so incredibly far, in the game,
is the medium by which the idea for this puzzle came!
But I shall too with this final detail easily part,
for, of versifying your questions well, you've made an art.


******SPOILER******

The inspiration for this puzzle of unfortunate lovers and bad romance,
are three of my favourite of Thomas Hardy's 'Satires of Circumstance'.
In the order each was individually explored and brought to light,
these are: XII: At the Draper's, VII: At the Window, and XV: In the Moonlight.
