Default Friendship poetry

I also love to use poetry inside of my cards. Your public library will have a awesome section of poetry books. If a trip to the library is out do a web search of poetry & friendship or whatever other subject you need. I have a file box divided into holidays and events, sympathy, thinking of you etc. that I file poems under so I can find them when I need them. Remember to include the author of the poem and personal use only. If you sell them it could be copyright infringement.
Here are two you might be able to use.

A Precious Gift
by Bea Wooley
Friendship is a priceless gift
That can't be bought or sold;
To have an understanding friend
Is worth much more than gold.

The precious chain of Friendship forms
A strong and sacred tie;
It binds two kindred hearts together,
As the years slip by.


What I Call A Friend
One whose grip is a little tighter,
One whose smile is a little brighter,
One whose deeds are a little whiter,
That's what I call a friend.
One who'll lend as quick as borrow,
One who's the same today as tomorrow,
One who'll share your joy and sorrow,
That's what I call a friend.
One who's been fine when life seemed rotten,
One whose ideals you've not forgotten,
One who has given more than he's gotten,
That's what I call a friend.
