Today I will spend time with my good friend
Someone who knows I mean none aught but good
To whom I never need myself defend
By whom I am easily understood

And whom, as well, it’s effortless for me
To understand, sith, if the truth I tell
He very much alike this poet be
In that he works to make more whole and well

His friends, his city, country and his All —
Laboring for that end unceasingly
Nor doth allow his watchful heart to fall
Into the the quicksands of complacency

Neither need stiff society pretend:
Glad comfort is the hallmark of a friend
