TO MY very best friend! to you, dear friend
The very best friend I know; —
Without stint, without end, my very best friend
Good wishes and greeting I cheerfully send,
Young Eros for you, dear, will willingly lend
His arrows of gold, and bow.

Young Eros, 't is said, has weapons of lead —
Both blunt and heavy to pull —
But his arrows of lead are for love that is dead,
So I covet a quiver of gold instead,
That love may all over the world be spread
Till every heart is full.
