There are so many wonderful poems to choose from it is
difficult to know where to make a start! We have
therefore devised a Top 20 List of our favourite poems.
It was an extremely difficult task and obviously our
choice, in the end, was based on personal preferences!
We hope that the list will provide our readers with as
much pleasure that these famous verses have given to us.
A good knowledge of these famous verses will provide all
students and children with a good grounding of the
subject. Each poet has a different style of writing
making expert use of the English language. We have been
asked on many occasions which is our favourite poem.
Impossible! Writing styles, subject matter and even
childhood memories influence choices, so we gave up and
endeavoured to, at least, compile a list of our top
twenty famous and favourite poems! The first line of the
famous verse has been included to jog the memory! Please
refer to the Index for the Top 20 list! We can, however
give examples of some lovely verses from a selection of the most
popular Friendship poems, starting with the first two verses of
the most popular Friendship poem of all - the Auld Lang
Syne poem by Robert Burns.
acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
If you can
keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream and not make dreams your master;
If you can think and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools
inspired Friendship poem ' If ' - by Rudyard Kipling
