To Ono Who is Engaged. In friendship's name I hag of thee, That when amid the gay you find The pleasures I would have bestowed On one so gentle and so kind; That thou wilt sometimes think of him And miBS him from the glittering sphere; Who now in friendship holds thy heart In friendly bonds moßt true and dear. And.when beneath thy lover's smile, Thy happiness is made complete; And at a tone or touch of his, Thy noble heart in fondness beats; The only blessing I could ask, To drive all sorrow from his brow, Is that, he'll only trust you then, As were I he, I'd trust thee now. And now farewell I prove true to him As I would have him prove to you; And trust me as a friend most dear Whom time can never find untrue, And when in happier days we meet, Oh J feel that I'm not changed by time, But meet me as we've often met, With feelings friendly, frank and kind.
