1. Title: “The Arrow and the Song”

I released an arrow into the sky,
Its descent below, a mystery untied.
Swiftly it soared beyond my gaze,
Evading sight in its elusive maze.

A melody, too, I set to the air,
Descending to a location unclear.
For whose vision is sharp and keen,
To trace the journey of a song, unseen?

Much later, within an ancient oak,
The arrow, unbroken, I awoke.
The song, from start to its final blend,
Rediscovered in the heart of a dear friend.

In the embrace of friendship’s true allure,
The arrow and song found solace secure.
A bond unbroken, melodies blend,
With an arrow’s flight, a tale to transcend.

2. Title: “A Poison Tree”

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I waterd it in fears
Night & morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright.
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine,

And into my garden stole,
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretchd beneath the tree.

3. Title: “Special True Friend”

Your friendship means the world,
A bond so dear, forever unfurled.
You’ll always be ingrained in me,
A cherished part, eternally.

In tough times, you stand by,
A constant presence under the sky.
Your care brightens my world,
A comforting flag unfurled.

You draw out the love within,
A friend, a mentor, where to begin?
Since our paths intertwined,
Our bond has only refined.

Meeting someone like you,
A gift, a friendship rare and true.
Gratitude fills my heart anew,
For a bond that continually grew.

4. Title: “I Should Not Dare to Leave My Friend”

I should not dare to leave my friend,
Because—because if he should die
While I was gone—and I—too late—
Should reach the Heart that wanted me—

If I should disappoint the eyes
That hunted—hunted so—to see—
And could not bear to shut until
They “noticed” me—they noticed me—

If I should stab the patient faith
So sure I’d come—so sure I’d come—
It listening—listening—went to sleep—
Telling my tardy name—

My Heart would wish it broke before—
Since breaking then—since breaking then—
Were useless as next morning’s sun—
Where midnight frosts—had lain!

I Should Not Dare to Leave My Friend - Poetry about Old Friendship

5. Title: “On the Friendship betwixt Two Ladies”

Tell me, lovely, loving pair!
Why so kind, and so severe?
Why so careless of our care,
Only to yourselves so dear?

By this cunning change of hearts,
You the power of love control;
While the boy’s eluded darts
Can arrive at neither soul.

For in vain to either breast
Still beguiled love does come,
Where he finds a foreign guest,
Neither of your hearts at home.

Are so lovely, sweet, and fair,
Or do more ennoble love;
Are so choicely matched a pair,
Or with more consent do move.

On the Friendship betwixt Two Ladies - Poetry about Old Friendship

6. Title: “Love and Friendship”

Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree—
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?

The wild rose-briar is sweet in spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?

Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly’s sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He still may leave thy garland green.

Amidst life’s tempests and seasons’ wane,
Friendship, like holly, will staunchly remain;
Through storms and frost, it stands serene,
A steadfast bond, evergreen, ever keen.

7. Title: “You Smile Upon Your Friend To-Day”

You grace your friend with a smile today,
His troubles are behind, at bay.
You listen to the lover’s sweet voice,
In love’s delight, hearts rejoice.

It’s belated to lend an ear, to share a grin,
Yet tardy is better than not begin.
I’ll have tasted life, though brief the endeavor,
Before I depart from it forever.

In the warmth of friendship, troubles fade,
A smile exchanged, a debt repaid.
Love’s whispers linger, happiness unfurls,
In the dance of time, joy twirls.

So, smile upon your friend today,
Chase the shadows, keep gloom at bay.
Late or soon, let connections sever,
I’ll have embraced life, if only forever.

8. Title: “Different Type of Friends”

In life, friends come in various forms,
They enter and exit amidst life’s storms.
Understanding their roles, we may find,
It’s easier to let go when the time is aligned.

Some friends arrive when in need,
Providing support, a selfless deed.
Their purpose fulfilled, time to part ways,
A fresh start beckons, new horizons ablaze.

Others bring laughter for a season,
Fun-filled moments, each with a reason.
As seasons change, friendships might conclude,
Ephemeral connections, not to be misconstrued.

Fortunate are those with lifetime friends,
Enduring bonds that time amends.
Laughter and tears, they’ve shared with pride,
A friendship that lingers, never to subside.

Sharing sorrows, sharing needs,
Exchanging deeds, where joy proceeds.
These ties bind, firm and true,
Friends by your side, in all you pursue.

Confiding in a trusted soul,
Secrets shared make friendships whole.
Through trials and challenges that sway,
A steadfast friend is here to stay.

In laughter and in tears,
In the passing of the years.
Through thick and thin, come what may,
Friendship’s light will never sway.

So cherish the bonds that time won’t rend,
With friends who’re there until the end.
In the tapestry of life, woven and frayed,
True companionship is forever displayed.

Through the years, more than a few,
Still standing strong, me and you.
From the days of grade school to this day,
A bond so special, in every way.

Through the highs and lows, good and bad,
Our connection enduring, never to be had.
Life’s journey led us here and there,
Yet, tightly we held, with love to spare.

You occupy a space within my heart,
Whether near or miles apart.
From grade school days to now,
Our friendship endures somehow.

In the tapestry of time, our story unfolds,
Cherished memories, in every chapter it holds.
Through the years, a friendship refined,
An enduring bond, forever intertwined.
