OCTAVES IN AN OXFORD GARDEN: 22, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Thus friendship. As a sacred citadel
Last Line: Whose sources only at that altar dwell.
Subject(s): Friendship


Thus Friendship. As a sacred citadel
Above the hurrying crowd of men it towers;
There in or sun or frost, or shine or showers,
Invites to worship with no beating bell
This world's a city, and it loves full well
The mid-street sanctuary that is ours
Whither to steal away renewing powers
Whose sources only at that Altar dwell.
