A Reckoning
Poet: Arthur Franklin Fuller

I'm thinking now of you, dear friend,
Because 'tis Christmas Day;
Through Retrospection's paths I wend.
And yield to Fancy's sway.

Each soul is a ship upon Life's sea -
Must bear both calms and gales;
A reckoning there oft must be,
To note how now she sails.

Each starts, attended - when all is fair.
But braves alone the deep;
So, few and precious are those who care
A friendly port to keep.

The times and things we two have shared -
Which formed our common ground,
Have woven bonds which Love has spared,
Since Faith our friendship crowned.

I'll think of you throughout the year.
At rest, at work and mart;
There'll always be,' your place, my dear -
A shrine within my heart.
