If I speak to thee in friendship's name, Thou think'st I speak too coldly; If I mention Love's devoted flame, Thou say'st I speak too boldly.
Thy friendship oft has made my heart to ache: Do be my enemy for friendship's sake.william blake
God grant you, friends, a helping hand In cares of state and private plights, In rowdy feasts of friendship's band, In passion's sweet and secret rites! God grant you, friends, a helping hand In daily woes and days of strife, On vacant sa, in distant land, In every black abyss of life!
Where fall the tears of love the rose appears, And where the ground is bright with friendship's tears, Forget-me-not, and violets, heavenly blue, Spring glittering with the cheerful drops like dew.
