  1. Fountain of Friendship
    Poet: Hall L. Calhoun

    Just a word of kindly greeting;
    Just a thought of other's care;
    Just a word of love repeating;
    How it lifts the load that's there!

    Just to know another's thinking;
    Just to feel another's there;
    Just to hope another's drinking;
    At the fountain of friendship fair.

    This it is that sets us feeling;
    This it is that cheers the soul;
    This it is that comes revealing,
    What is friendship's real goal.

    Let me then a kind word speak;
    Let me cheer another's heart;
    Let me joy for others seek
    As in life I take my part.

  3. Faults Of Others
    Poet:  Daniel C. Colesworthy

    What are another's faults to me?
    I've not a vulture's bill,
    To pick at every flaw I see,
    And make it wider still.

    It is enough for me to know
    I've follies of my own;
    And on my heart the care bestow,
    And let my friends alone.

  4. Friendship
    Poet: Leonora Milliken Boss

    We often meet in walks of life.
    Those who are strange of face;
    But they oftimes in passing,
    Have left the faintest trace

    Of something we can hardly name,
    But, still, must own it's there;
    A something that in passing,
    Has left our lives more fair.

    And may there not, in meeting here,
    Within this forest grand,
    A friendship been cemented,
    A friendship that will stand.

    We meet, we part, we know not how,
    Or when again we'll meet.
    But there is, in forest friendship,
    A something rare and sweet.

    And may it be in after years,
    These days you'll each recall,
    And linger then with fondness
    On the crowning scene of all.

    The forest; with its stately trees,
    So large and straight and grand,
    A monument to friendship,
    For in unity they stand.

    Not a chord that is not vibrant
    With harmony supreme;
    Take them ever for your guidance.
    Then you'll know what friendship means.

  5. A Life Treasure, A Friend
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020

    A life treasure to me
    Is my old friend indeed
    They have been around
    While others have gone underground.

    That old friend is dependable
    There is no one comparable
    Through good times and bad
    During the happy and the sad.

    Memories that will be with me
    Of old friends and being happy
    Cherished times we have shared
    Always with love and care.

    But we should not forget
    Nor should we regret
    Making new friends also
    Start by saying hello.

    As new friends become old friends
    With time passing by, one tends
    To realize that new or old
    Friends are truly gold!

  7. Loves You No Matter What
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020

    Who is that friend that loves you, no matters what
    They would run through the mud, jump over a hut
    Just to be with you
    They love you, no matter what you do.

    They say they are man's best friend
    They will stand by your side to the end
    They are always loyal and will protect you so
    Doesn't matter if you are fast or slow.

    So by now, you have figured out
    And you may want to shout
    A dog is man's best friend,
    One who will stand with us to the end!

  8. Around Your Heart
    Poet: Greta Zwaan, 2018

    Friendship curls around your heart and joy replaces gloom,
    It gives your life a sense of peace and calm.
    It soothes the troubled mind where anxiety has ruled,
    It comforts like a soothing, healing balm.

    The curtain of despair that has threatened to devour
    The very peace you tried so hard to find,
    That has put your life on pause and subjected you to pain,
    And has claimed each corner of your troubled mind.

    Seems less painful when it’s shared with a friend who knows your heart,
    On whose shoulder you can shed your many tears.
    Who will never reprimand and repeat what you have said,
    Who will help to heal your hurts and deepest fears.

  10. Love Us Best
    Poet: C. C. Hassler

    We may breast the waves of sorrow
    That sometimes run mountain high,
    See the hopes, we fondly cherish
    Droop, and wither, fade and die
    We may yearn for love and sympathy
    To cheer us, as we go.
    With weary footsteps over
    Paths where thorns and roses grow,
    But there's always this assurance
    Soothes an aching, tired breast.
    Friends that God has chosen for us,
    Always seem to love us best.

    Tis the little cares and worries.
    That in life go hand in hand,
    And the little slights and troubles
    That are hardest to withstand.
    But the little streams of pleasure,
    Dancing onward to the sea,
    Make the life of all worth living
    Even in adversity,
    For the friendly hands that often
    In our own are fondly pressed,
    Made us sure that of all others,
    They're the ones that love us best.

    Tis the little deeds of kindness
    That we show to others here,
    That shall bear the richest fruitage
    When the harvest shall appear.
    For the gentle word of sympathy
    That cheers us on the way.
    Makes the path thro' life seem brighter.
    Helps to drive the clouds away.
    And when life's bright rays are fading,
    Like the sunset in the west,
    Friends we meet in birthday greetings,
    Always seem to love us best.

  11. Thank You My Friend
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020

    I don't say it often enough
    Maybe because I think I'm tough
    But this thank you is long overdue
    You are a great friend and I appreciate you!

    We have had some wonderful times
    Times I wouldn't trade for a million dimes
    And then there have been times that are challenging too
    But I could always depend on you.

    So, my friend, I just want to say
    Thank you, in every way
    For being my friend each and every day
    You are the best, you're more than okay!

  12. Welcome My Friend
    Poet: Unknown

    The world is filled
    With all too few
    Wonderful people
    Like YOU!

    My door is always open
    You are always welcome here
    Our friendship is golden
    You, my friend, are so dear!

  14. Friendship
    Poet: Unknown

    It is my joy in life to find
    At every turning of the road,
    The strong arms of a comrade kind.
    To help me onward with my load;
    And since I have no gold to give.
    And love alone must make amends,
    My only prayer is while I live, —
    God make me worthy of my friends.

  15. Upon The Sand
    By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    All love that has not friendship for its base,
    Is like a mansion built upon the sand.
    Though brave its walls as any in the land,
    And its tall turrets lift their heads in grace;
    Though skilful and accomplished artists trace
    Most beautiful designs on every hand,
    And gleaming statues in dim niches stand,
    And fountains play in some flow'r-hidden place,
    Yet, when from the frowning east a sudden gust
    Of adverse fate is blown, or sad rains fall
    Day in, day out, against its yielding wall,
    Lo ! the fair structure crumbles to the dust.
    Love, to endure life's sorrow and earth's woe,
    Needs friendship's solid mason-work below.

  16. How Blessed I Am
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020

    Don't think a day goes by
    When I stop and realize
    How blessed I am
    To have a friend like you

    I appreciate your kindness
    Your listening ear
    When I tell you of my fears
    You listen, you hear.

    Appreciation for another
    Especially like you, no other
    Thanks my friend for always being there
    Appreciation I do share!

  17. A Friend Is Someone
    Poet Unknown

    A friend is someone
    we turn to when our spirits need a life.
    A friend is someone
    we treasure for our friendship is a gift.
    A friend is someone
    who fills our lives with beauty, joy, and grace
    And makes the world
    we live in a better and happier place.

  18. I went out to find a friend But could not find one there; I went out to be a friend, And friends were everywhere!

  19. Friends
    by S. E. Kiser

    Not he that counts my errors;
    Not he that holds me back
    With doubting words to show me
    Wherein and how I lack;
    Not he that sees my failings;
    And, seeing them, is free
    To take my measure by them —
    He's not the friend for me.

    But he that learns my virtues,
    Who takes me at my best;
    Who notes my greater failings
    And overlooks the rest;
    Who, after I have striven
    And have not failed, is free
    With words of commendation —
    He is the friend for me.

    He that forever warns me
    Of dangers in my way.
    Who doubts my strength to meet them
    And ever bids me stay,
    May truly seek to shield me.
    May wish me well, but he
    Whose faith is inspiration —
    He is the friend for me.

  20. Worthy Of My Friends
    by Frank Dempster Sherman

    It is my joy in life to find
    At every turning of the road,
    The strong arm of a comrade kind
    To help me onward with my load:
    And since I have no gold to give,
    And love alone must make amends,
    My only prayer is, while I live, —
    God make me worthy of my friends!
