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 biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
