Here you will find the Poem We Have Been Friends Together of poet Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton
WE have been friends together, In sunshine and in shade; Since first beneath the chestnut-trees In infancy we played. But coldness dwells within thy heart, A cloud is on thy brow; We have been friends together? Shall a light word part us now? We have been gay together; We have laugh?d at little jests; For the fount of hope was gushing Warm and joyous in our breasts. But laughter now hath fled thy lip, And sullen glooms thy brow; We have been gay together? Shall a light word part us now? We have been sad together, We have wept, with bitter tears, O?er the grass-grown graves, where slumber?d The hopes of early years. The voices which are silent there Would bid thee clear thy brow; We have been sad together? Oh! what shall part us now?
