Poem… Friendship


(translation|modification of Amistad)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Friendship is bonny!
Like a scorching fire
and with full clarity,
it abides in love.

Replete with sincerity,
sentiment of fervor…
Lift your hopes
because love is everlasting.

Lord, our Graceful Hope,
give your children infinite love.
Strike us with your spear
of love & friendship.
