A Legacy
 Poet: John Greenleaf Whittier

Friend of my many years!
When the great silence falls, at last, on me.
Let me not leave, to pain and sadden thee,
A memory of tears.

But pleasant thoughts alone
Of one who was thy friendship’s honored guest
And drank the wine of consolation pressed
From sorrows of thy own.

I leave with thee a sense
Of hands upheld and trials rendered less -
The unselfish joy which is to helpfulness
Its own great recompense


Give To Your Friend
Poet: Author Unknown


My wild Irish rose
The sweetest flower that grows
You may search everywhere
But none can compare to my wild Irish rose

My wild Irish rose
The sweetest flower that grows
Someday for my sake she may let me take
A bloom from my wild Irish rose

'Tis better to buy a small bouquet
And give to your friend this very day,
Than a bushel of roses white and red
To lay on his coffin after he's dead.


The Things I Prize
Poet: Henry vanDyke


These are the things I prize
And hold of dearest worth
Light of the sapphire skies.
Peace of the silent hills.
Shelter of the forests, comfort of the grass.
Music of birds, murmur of little rills.
Shadows of cloud that swiftly pass.
And, after showers.
The smell of flowers
And of the good brown earth —
And best of all, along the way, friendship and mirth.


Kindness During Life
Poet: Unknown


I would rather have one little rose
From the garden of a friend
Than to have the choicest flowers
When my stay on earth shall end.

I would rather have one pleasant word
In kindness said to me,
Than flattery when my heart is still
And life has ceased to be.

I would rather have a loving smile
From friends I know are true,
Than tears shed round my casket
When this world I’ve bid adieu.

Bring me all your flowers today -
Whether pink, or white, or red;
I’d rather have one blossom now
Than a truckload when I’m dead.


Appreciate Friends Verses

An ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness
Nothing is impossible to a valiant heart.
Clear water flows from a pure spring.
Love your friend with his faults.
