Patience is a friend–
But not to all,
A friend with an odd taste.
For it befriends testiness and anger,
And only they could bring him out wherever he exists.
In the face of calm and reason,
Patience shies away into solitary.
For with love it rarely shines
It blossoms–where the seed already is.
A man who befriends patience
Should fear no stormy day,
Neither should he dread a nagging woman,
For only then can his friend,
show his face for all to see.
