    The love of man and woman is as fire
  To warm, to light, but surely to consume
  And self-consuming die…
But comrade-love is as a welding blast
  Of candid flame and ardent temperature:
  Glowing more fervent, it doth bind more fast;
And melting both but makes the union sure.
The dross alone is burnt—till at the last
The steel, if cold, is one and strong and pure.
          My Comrade.

  I ’d rather be youthful than old;
If I can’t have a bushel of silver
  I’ll do with a barrel of gold.

    Lor’, but women’s rum cattle to deal with, the first man found that to his cost,
And I reckon it’s just through a woman the last man on earth’ll be lost.
