I hope the day will be a lighter highway
For friends are found on every road
Can you ever think of any better way
For the lost and weary travelers to go

Making friends for the world to see
Let the people know you got what you need
With a friend at hand you will see the light
If your friends are there, then everything's all right

It seems to me a crime that we should age
These fragile times should never slip us by
A time you never can or shall erase
As friends together watch their childhood fly

Making friends for the world to see
Let the people know you got what you need
With a friend at hand you will see the light
If your friends are there, then everything's all right

Making friends for the world to see
Let the people know you got what you need
With a friend at hand you will see the light
If your friends are there, then everything's all right

    General CommentShe came out of the frost
    Her cheeks glowing
    And filled the room with chatter
    Utterly disrespectful of serious pursuits
    All this was somewhat annoying
    And rather absurd
    My room began to look fearfully crowded
    I can’t control this curious handmaid
    So I dismiss the muse
    I am too tired to quarrel
    Telling people’s fortunes by the King of Hearts!
    What boredom!
    I knew her in those fabled years
    One haunted by wondrous desire
    A magic landscape—a lonely sleigh
    There’s talk—then friendly laughter
    And songs
    Whispering at the table
    Gay and ready wit!
    How jolly!

    My thoughts are far away and so
    I close the volume—sit down—take up my pen
    Force my dull muse to say some incoherent words
    But harmony is wanting
    The sounds won’t chime
