Writer’s quote: Friendship

Writer’s quote: Friendship


Welcome to another writer’s quote/poem Wednesday, where I share some of my favourite poems written by other authors. Today’s poem talks about friendship, with lines which melt the heart, written in brief verses with sequential rhymes. Talking about friendship, WordPress here, has one of the most supportive online community.

Well, a fellow blogger did something totally unexpected two weeks ago, which touched my heart. Its fellow blogger and poet, Jade M Wong. She also does these writer’s quote Wednesday series and that week, she shared one of my poems as an inspiration. Thank you very much Jade and I felt honoured with your gesture. I have written long before this blog, so I wouldn’t say I am in need of validation with my writing, but acknowledgement brings about such a wonderful feeling.

Still on the note of friendship, a dear blogger, Colin of a dog’s life, recently released his poetry book- just thinking. He has been such a support system for me here, so I’d appreciate it if you guys could take a minute to check his blog and his book too. The funds raised from the book would go towards an amazing cause. Check out this link to find out more:Β Just thinking.Β All that being said, (I hope I didn’t ramble too much), below is the poem:

The Arrow and the Song by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.

    1. Hi bisimodupe1975 – I am not sure whether I am understanding your lovely comment but the “very beautiful poem by Colin” perhaps is the Longfellow poem noted by Ameena? Perhaps you will consider buying my “Just Thinking” book…. and perhaps you will find a number of beautiful poems by Colin there! Regards. Colin. πŸ™‚

  1. Thank you Ameena for choosing to mention “Just Thinking”. Any and all promotional writings are really appreciated, especially as I will be donating 100% of all funds raised from sales as noted in the book. Take care. Colin.
