Friendship
By Amos Bronson Alcott (1799–1888)
 
NOR elsewise man shall fellow meet,
In public place, in converse sweet,
In holy aisles, at market gate,
In learning’s halls, or courts of state,
Nor persons properly shall find,        5
Save in the commonwealth of Mind;
Fair forms herein their souls intrude,
Peopling what else were solitude.
