Lines of FRIENDSHIP
What warms the soul, what cheers the heart,
Is FRIENDSHIP'S renovating tie;
Yes this can social joy impart,
And wipe the tear from sorrow's eye.
FRIENSHIP'S is what we all admire;
Yet often nothing but a name;
Will kindle, burn and soon expire,
Just like a meteor's empty flame.
Where real FRIENSHIP is possessed,
It's a blessing to mankind,
It soothes affliction's troubled heart,
And elevates the sinking mind.
Thus private friends who dwell in love,
Are taught to feel another's woe,
To raise their thoughts on things above,
And live in FRIENDSHIP here below.
