Be A Friend

Be a friend.  You don’t need money:
Just a disposition sunny;
Just a wish to help another
Get along some way or other;
Just a kindly hand extended
Out to one who’s un-befriended;
Just the will to give or lend,
This will make you someone’s friend.

Be a friend.  You don’t need glory.
Friendship is a simple story.
Pass by trifling errors blindly,
Gaze on honest effort kindly,
Cheer the youth who’s bravely trying,
Pity him who’s sadly sighing;
Just a little labour spend
On the duties of a friend.

Be a friend.  The pay is bigger
(Though not written by a figure)
Than is earned by people clever
In what’s merely self-endeavour.
You’ll have friends instead of neighbours
For the profits of your labours;
You’ll be richer in the end
Than a prince, if you’re a friend.
