Farewell To A Friend
Farewell, my friend, the time for us to part
Hath come, as festive banquets have to quit,
By enduring Time, and our wavering heart,
In which our capricious lives have to meet.
Adieu, my pal, a journey of chance waits
For thee, tomorrow the sun will still be bright
As today's, if not brighter to thine aids,
Shining right on thy path forthcoming light.
From hence wilt thou be gone in corporal form,
But will forever within our memory dwell,
As even in Life's tempestuous storm,
Peace would be soon restored by Friendship's spell.
A thousand more words ...
Lie No More
How with the track of time can we withstand,
When Gaiety has become my enemy,
And let me not enjoy her company,
With whom my hours have lavishly been spent?
How would I have a better chance of winning you,
Being a merry man with smiles to charm,
Than a ludicrous wretch, a fortune's fool,
Dreaming on end upon the way of harm?
