TRUE TO THE BEST, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Long years of pleasant friendship may be broken
Last Line: We meet disloyal usage from a friend?


Long years of pleasant friendship may be broken
By one hour's work with thoughtless word or deed.
Yet why forget the thousand good words spoken,
The kindly help which met a passing need?

We do not spurn the sunlight when 'tis hidden;
We look for good when fiercest storms descend.
Then why lose faith, when undeserved, unbidden,
We meet disloyal usage from a friend?
