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,
