The Pleasures Of Friendship

The pleasures of friendship are exquisite,
How pleasant to go to a friend on a visit!
I go to my friend, we walk on the grass,
And the hours and moments like minutes pass.

Anyone smitten by Millay can relate; understandably She dedicated 'Conversation At Midnight' to this largely unrecognized, grand poet. I'm fairly sure that the Yale library has the complete works of Arthur Davison Ficke.... just great stuff if you've a passion for early to mid 20th cent poets whose raison d' etre is the experience and expression of a life's joys, both ultimately captivating and boundlessly expansive.
