I could not think of anything else to write besides the fact that this is my last post. Thank you so much y’all for making english SUCH a good year. I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. This was probably the best english class I have ever had in my entire high school career. I loved the discussions, how we got to sit in a round table and just talk. We bonded, laughed over food, and built friendships. So here, is one of my favorite poems about friendship by Ralph Waldo Emerson.


Ralph Waldo Emerson

A ruddy drop of manly blood

The surging sea outweighs;

The world uncertain comes and goes,

The lover rooted stays.

I fancied he was fled,

And, after many a year,

Glowed unexhausted kindliness

Like daily sunrise there.

My careful heart was free again-

O friend, my bosom said,

Through thee alone the sky is arched,

Through thee the rose is red,

All things through thee takes nobler form

And look beyond the earth,

The mill-round of our fate appears

A sun-path in thy worth.

Me too thy nobleness has taught

To master my despair;

The fountains of my hidden life

Are through thy friendship fair.

Lots of love,
