| The love of man and woman is as fire|
To warm, to light, but surely to consume
And self-consuming die
But comrade-love is as a welding blast
Of candid flame and ardent temperature:
Glowing more fervent, it doth bind more fast;
And melting both but makes the union sure.
The dross alone is burnttill at the last
The steel, if cold, is one and strong and pure.
| My Comrade.|
| I d rather be handsome than homely;|
I d rather be youthful than old;
If I cant have a bushel of silver
Ill do with a barrel of gold.
| All loved Art in a seemly way|
With an earnest soul and a capital A.

| Lor, but womens rum cattle to deal with, the first man found that to his cost,|
And I reckon its just through a woman the last man on earthll be lost.
