The Poets Tributes to Garfield

Excerpt from The Poets Tributes to Garfield: A Collection of Many Memorial Poems 'Commend me to the friend that comesWhen I am sad and lone, And makes the anguish of my heartThe suffering of his own;Who coldly shuns the glittering throngAt pleasure's gay levee, And comes to gild a sombre hourAnd give his heart to me. He hears me count my sorrows o'er;And when the task is doneHe freely gives me all I ask, -A sigh for every one.He cannot wear a smiling faceWhen mine is touched with gloom, But like the violet seeks to cheerThe midnight with perfume. Commend me to that generous heartWhich like the pine on highUplifts the same unvarying browTo every change of sky;Whose friendship does not fade awayWhen wintry tempests blow, But like the winter's ley crownLooks greener through the snow. He flies not with the flitting stork, That seeks a southern sky, But lingers where the wounded birdHath laid him down to die.Oh, such a friend! He is in truth, What e'er his lot storm of life, An anchor on its sea. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
