    Friendship
    by Elizabeth Jennings (1926-2001)

    Such love I cannot analyse;
    It does not rest in lips or eyes,
    Neither in kisses nor caress.
    Partly, I know, it's gentleness

    And understanding in one word
    Or in brief letters. It's preserved
    By trust and by respect and awe.
    These are the words I'm feeling for.

    Two people, yes, two lasting friends.
    The giving comes, the taking ends
    There is no measure for such things.
    For this all Nature slows and sings.
