Seawolf's Haven




Your friend  is your needs answered
He is your field 
which you sow 
with love 
and reap 
with thanksgiving.

And he is your board 
and your fireside.
For you come to him 
with your hunger, 
and you seek him 
for peace .

When your friend 
speaks his mind 
you fear not
the ‘nay' 
in your own mind,
nor do you ‘withhold 
the ‘ay'

And when he is silent 
your heart
ceases not 
to listen
to his heart;

For without words, 
in friendship, 
all thoughts, 
all desires, 
all expectations 
are born and shared, 
with joy 
that is acclaimed.

When you part 
from your friend 
you grieve not;
For that 
which you love most 
in him 
may be clearer
in his absence,
as the mountain 
to the climber 
is clearer
from the plain.

And let there be
no purpose  in friendship 
save the deepening 
of the spirit.

For love 
that seeks aught 
but the disclosure 
of its own mystery 
is not love 
but a net cast forth:
and only 
the unprofitable 
is caught.

And let your best  be
for your friend.
If he must know 
the ebb of your tide, 
let him know 
its flood also.

For what is your friend 
that you should seek him 
with hours to kill?

Seek him always 
with hours to live
For it is his 
to feel your need, 
but not
your emptiness.

And in the sweetness 
of friendship 
let there be laughter, 
and sharing of pleasures.

For in the dew
of little things 
the heart finds
its morning 
and is refreshed .
