So close we have become in thirty
years: Intimate as sisters, thick as friends; So intermingled in our joys and tears That each familiar glance a novel sends! Even sisters sometimes grow apart, Remembering but dimly days long past. In us there is a closeness of the heart, Natural yet loose enough to last. Life often can with mad indifference cast A pair together drawn from odds and ends, While we could not be better matched by art.
