Friendship's Token - Pink Saturday

This is an illustration from a wonderful vintage book of poetry. My dear friend Marian gave it to me with this inscription: “To a very special friend. From among my OLD memories.”

She flew away to heaven some time ago. I will always miss her very much. And so in honor of my dear Friend I share this poem:

Only a little token,
Offered for Friendship’s sake—
Picture and song together
Here, with my greeting, take.
*
What though on brightest pictures
Time’s hand at last be lain;
What though earth’s songs awaken
Only to sleep again?
*
Voices once loved ring ever
In faithful listening ears;
The sacred hand of Friendship
Gleams through the mist of years.
-- Ellis Walton
