What Are We Friends For?


What are we friends for If I can't stay in your room; If you are seeing a movie And I can't see it with you? What are we friends for If I have to time my stay; If after the long arm moves through 90 degrees I must be on my way? What are we friends for If your company I eschew; If I'd rather be with strangers Than spend time with you? For i am to make new friends While keeping the old; The one is meant to be silver And the other gold But won't I have to make new friends While discarding you- the old For the new friend is accommodating And old you is cold? Or am I to play Mona Lisa- Sad but smiling- Waiting till a new friend, a deliverer Becomes my glad tiding?

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
