FRIENDS: 4, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O patron saints of all my friends
Last Line: I pray you every day.


O patron Saints of all my friends!
O guardian Angels of them all!
With them begins, with them still ends,
My prayer's most passionate call.

You know my voice: you know their names,
That wing so its least selfish tone
Across your white celestial flames,
And up to the White Throne.

Heaven were not Heaven, and they not there;
Heaven were no Heaven, my friends away:
O Saints and Angels! hear my prayer,
I pray you every day.
