Friendship
By Santob de Carrion
 
WHAT treasure greater than a friend
  Who close to us hath grown?
Blind fate no bitt’rer lot can send
  Than bid us walk alone.
 
For solitude doth cause a dearth        5
  Of fruitful, blessed thought,
The wise would pray to leave this earth,
  If none their friendship sought.
 
Yet sad though loneliness may be,
  That friendship surely shun        10
That feigns to love, and inwardly
  Betrays affections won.
