W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  The Wind Among the Reeds.  1899.

32. The Poet pleads with his Friend for old Friends


THOUGH you are in your shining days, 
Voices among the crowd 
And new friends busy with your praise, 
Be not unkind or proud, 
But think about old friends the most:         5
Time’s bitter flood will rise, 
Your beauty perish and be lost 
For all eyes but these eyes.
