Treasure Island

FRIENDSHIP IS PRECIOUS


Friendship is always auspicious,
‘Tis a bank that never runs dry;
You can retain its worth till you die
For to help, a friend seldom tires.

Friendship is a relationship that binds,
Like that of the hand and the eye –
When the hand gets hurt, eyes cry;
And when the eyes cry, hand wipes.

Friendship is a regimen that heals;
‘Twill suffice when you are in need –
It sooths when your heart doth bleed,
And shields you from that which kills.

Friendship is a treasure like no other,
Its ingenuity outdoes all earthly riches,
With it you can unravel life’s hitches;
O’ pals do good than would a brother.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
