A Broken Friendship

Rating: 4.3
Alas! they had been friends in youth;
But whispering tongues can poison truth;
And constancy lives in realms above;
And life is thorny; and youth is vain;
And to be wroth with one we love,
Doth work like madness in the brain.
And thus is chanced, as I divine,
With Roland and Sir Leoline.
Each spake words of high disdain
And insult to his heart's best brother:
They parted - ne'er to meet again!

They stood aloof, the scars remaining, Like cliffs which had been rent asunder; A dreary see now flows between; - But neither heat, nor frost, nor thunder Shall wholly do away, I ween, The marks of that which once hath been sad.. sad.. sad!

whispering tongues can poison truth; And constancy lives in realms above; And life is thorny; and youth is vain; What a great realization.. tony

Shall wholly do away, I ween, The marks of that which once hath been... Very wonderful presentation of broken friendship grief and joy of words within. This is highly appreciated. Beautiful and ever green.
