The Language of Friendship

by WH Auden

Easy at first, the language
of friendship
Is, as we soon discover,
Very difficult to speak
well…
And, unless spoken often,
soon goes rusty.
Distance and duties divide
us,
But absence will not seem
an evil
If it make our re-meeting
A real occasion. Come
when you can:
Your room will be ready.
