“We meet on the broad pathway of good faith and good will; no advantage shall be taken on either side, but all shall be openness and love. The friendship between me and you I will not compare to a chain; for that the rains might rust, or the falling tree might break. We are the same as if one man’s body were to be divided into two parts, we are all one flesh and blood.”
HELLO MY FRIEND.
COME SHAKE THIS BROKEN HAND,
HUG THESE SHRUGGED UP SHOULDERS.
SMILE INTO THESE STARVING EYES,
AND KISS THIS FURROWED BROW.
THEN TALK TO ME OF BEAUTIFUL THINGS.
