Subject(s): Friendship


THIS book is his? the beautiful dreams between
These covers his, the friend's I used to know?
Yet many a morn together have we seen
The clouds refold their airy tents and go,

And many a silent evening, from the glen,
The mountain blazing with their golden camp.
Fool that I was not to have known him then!
I never guessed he owned Aladdin's lamp!

He seemed like other men whom one may meet,
But, like the honey-bees, with skill untold,
He gathered treasures even at my feet,
And in the dark was building roofs of gold!
