Friendship Poems

Fulfillment

by William Cavendish

There is no happier life
But in a wife;
The comforts are so sweet
When two do meet.
‘Tis plenty, peace, a calm
Like dropping balm;
Love’s weather is so fair,
Like perfumed air.
Each word such pleasure brings
Like soft-touched stirrings;
Love’s passion moves the heart
On either part;
Such harmony together,
So pleased in either.
No discords; concords still;
Sealed with one will.
By love, God made man one,
Yet not alone.
Like stamps of king and queen
It may be seen:
Two figures on one coin,
So do they join,
Only they not embrace.
We, face to face.
