Our Friendship got tested


The lashing rains stung our face
We sat together side by side
The howling winds shook our bodies
We each held on despite the tide

Our hands grasped firm and tight
Not parting from the cold
We kept each other warm
Against the storm so bold

They pelted us with stones
Stating we were wrong
We held each other tight
Our friendship grew so strong

They wanted us to walk away
And part the angry way
We kept our friendship bold an strong
To last another day

The wrath of nature was our foe
We felt like slipping by
Our friendship knew no failure
We sat, we hugged, both her and I

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
