Only Friends - Poem by David Harris

I went into a saloon last night
and a notice stood out
like a beacon light.
The notice read as follows.

There are no strangers here,
only friends.
There is no frowning,
only smiles.
If you are feeling lonely,
this is the place to come,
as there is always
someone to talk to,
for there are no strangers here,
only friends.

The poem was written around a quote that hangs in the saloon of the western town I helped build. The quote: There Are No Strangers Here - Only Friends came from my friend and our Town Mayor Papa Bear (Derek Lewry)

    That's lovely D. You always remind us of the positive things in life. (Such a notice will not be hung on the poetry forum, I suspect) . t x (Report) Reply
