GOODBYE, MY FRIEND, by             Poem Explanation        
First Line: Goodbye, myfriend, goodbye
Last Line: Though living is no newer
Alternate Author Name(s): Yesenin, Sergei

Goodbye, my friend, goodbye
My love, you are in my heart.
It was preordained we should part
And be reunited by and by.

Goodbye: no handshake to endure.
Let's have no sadness - furrowed brow.
There's nothing new in dying now
Though living is no newer.
