FRIEND, by            
First Line: How well the soul responds
Last Line: Unto the greeting of its kin.
Subject(s): Greetings

How well the soul responds
With happy welcoming
Unto the greeting of its kith and kind;
Magnetic as the moon who draws the sea
To her embrace,
Soft as a feathered wing.

She came to me, and in her face I saw
God, and all men with faith in Him;
She spoke, and in those tones
All innocence and charity found voice;
A presence seemed to walk before her form
And greet me, saying,
"Here am I, known to you always,
And yet unknown!"

I did not wonder whence or why,
Only I knew a soul was here
Who knew me well
And called me silently;
So, silently, I took her hand
And smiled, and that was all,
But well the soul responds
Unto the greeting of its kin.
