Make New Friends

Make new friends but keep the old.
Those are silver, these are gold.
New made friendships like new wine
Age will mellow and refine.
Friendships that have stood the test
Time and change are surely best.
Brow may wrinkle, hair turn gray
Friendship never knows decay.
For ‘mid old friends, tried and true,
Once more we our youth renew.
But old friends alas may die.
New friends must their place supply.
Cherish friendship in your breast.
New is good but old is best.
