Have Your Dues Been Paid ?
~Marge Tindal~ 1999



The friendship circle grows
with each new friend you bring
into the circle joining others,
with joy our hearts do sing.

God did not draw the circle
with boundaries to keep others at bay.
He drew it round so it could grow
as others came to stay.

We are all free
to have friends of our making.
Friendship is give and take
and free for the taking.

And yet it is not free
for we have a heart to share.
We must pay our dues
to friendship everywhere.

The dues of friendship are simple.
Trust, faith and loyalty.
Do unto others is the code,
for friendship, you see.

Have you paid your dues?
You'll know that this is true,
when the love you give to others
comes abundantly back to you.

It is true.  My heart overflows.

Denise -
Thank you, my friend.

First_Knight -

So glad to warm your heart.
Now ... take that check and donate it
to a worthy charity.

Not sure if I should thank you ... or Snoops for the kind words ... soooo I'll thank both!

Passions dues I've paid
And then some
In friendship I have
Done my best

I give my heart to all who take it
Never wanting in return

Friendship has no price, no limit
Useless are the friends you buy
Life is always, ever changing, but friendship
Lasts when all else fades away

You give so freely Marge.  Your open arms extend to see beyond the word and read between the lines.  You listen with compassion and give without reserve. Thanks!

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Is it that time already?
Can this now be true?
If I'm paying for his stoopid Moose
Will you count the rest paid too?

(Elmer , and Ad , and M. were a little short this week ).Nice poem Marge !
