Emily Dickinson: Brilliant Flowers for a Brilliant Friend

I send two Sunsets--
Day and I in competition ran,
I finished two, and several stars,
While He was making one.

His own is ampler--
But, as I was saying to a friend,
Mine is the more convenient
To carry in the hand.

Looking, this evening, for a way to send all good thoughts to the dearest of friends. There is a white pitcher painted with butterflies that has been waiting to go to her house, for days...with sunflowers in it, a note on it, thoughts of thankfulness for her friendship surrounding it. Until the pitcher gets to it's appointed home, this little poem by Emily might suffice.

Winston Churchill understood, too:

"Friendship," he said, "is the only cement that will hold the world together."
