Love and Friendship

"Love and Friendship"
by Emily Bronte

Love is like the wild rose-briar

Friendship like the holly tree

The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms

But which will bloom most constantly?

The wild rose-briar is sweet in spring,

Its summer blossoms scent the air

Yet wait till winter comes again

And who will call the wild-briar fair?

Then, scorn the silly rose-wreath now

And deck with thee the holly's sheen,

Then when December blights thy brow

He still may leave thy garland green.
