If Friends Were Foes


If friends were foes
And foes were friends
Would my foes' foes
Be my foes?

Would I be careful
Of my closest friends?
Would they be the most feared foes?
Would the foe with a knife behind me
Be my guardian
And a friend?

Truly
If friends are friends
And foes are foes
What are you?

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
