With the coronavirus pandemic keeping us mostly inside our homes, this Friendship Day is the first of its kind. But not to worry! Stay in and share some poems and quotes with your friends to celebrate the bond of friendship:

Poems:

There's nane that's blest of human kind, But the cheerful and the gay, man, Fal, la, la, &c. Here's a bottle and an honest friend! What wad ye wish for mair, man? Wha kens, before his life may end, What his share may be o' care, man? Then catch the moments as they fly, And use them as ye ought, man: Believe me, happiness is shy, And comes not aye when sought, man.

We’Ve Been Through So Much Together In So Little Time We’Ve Shared I Will Never Forget All The Moments That You’Ve Shown Me How Much You Cared.

Friends Are Forever Especially The Bond That You And I Possess I Love Your Fun-Filled Personality Somehow You Never Fail To Impress.

O could I give thee India's wealth, As I this trifle send; Because thy joy in both would be To share them with a friend.  But golden sands did never grace The Heliconian stream; Then take what gold could never buy— An honest bard's esteem.

Friendship is not just the name of an ordinary feeling. but it is the name of the feelings of understanding, honesty and frankness between two persons. and these feelings keep the two very special persons bounded together and such a friendship lies in two of us

A Friend is a Treasure A friend is someone we turn to, when our spirits need a lift. A friend is someone we treasure, for our friendship is a gift. A friend is someone who fills our lives, with beauty, joy and grace. And make the world we live in, a better and happier place.

Friendships come and Friendships go Like wave upon the sand Like day and night Like birds in flight Like snowflakes when they land But you and I are something else Our friendship's here to stay Like weeds and rocks and socks It never goes away!
