Bonhomie -/- Amitie

7:5
Bonhomie

Meaningful, sympathetic, interpersonal relationships:
Humanity’s first vitality

Insurmountable friendship’s fastiduous acquisition
Difficult to break

Friendship’s mutual understanding crowns;
Companionship, cohabitation, conversation

Extending eternal, immutable support
Friendship’s prodigal state

***

Trusting strangers, doubting friends,
Brings irredeemable sorrow

Hands supporting slipping garments
Bonhomie’s spontaneous reflex

Despite reproving friends privately
Publicly commend them


7:6
Amity

Friendship resembles cultivating libraries
Delights discovered daily

As fire forges iron
Sincerity seals friendship

Concord interrupts, “May I?”
With, “Of Course!”

As canals irrigate soil
Closeness invigorates life

***

Not fun, but guidance,
Friendship’s proper role

Friend of a friend
Treat as friend

Pals plummet inside infernos
Helping one another
