OCTAVES: 13, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I grant you friendship is a royal thing
Last Line: Of its own wealth and wisdom the old scorn.


I grant you friendship is a royal thing,
But none shall ever know that royalty
For what it is till he has realized
His best friend in himself. 'T is then, perforce,
That man's unfettered faith indemnifies
Of its own conscious freedom the old shame,
And love's revealed infinitude supplants
Of its own wealth and wisdom the old scorn.
