Where Can You Find Free Poems About Friendship Online?

A large collection of poems about friendship is available at the Poem Hunter website; other poems can also be found at the Poetry Archive and the Poetry Foundation. Examples include "Friendship IXX" by Khalil Gibran, "Love and Friendship" by Emily Bronte and "From Love to Friendship" by Voltaire.

In "Love and Friendship," Bronte sets out to comparatively define the two terms, observing that while love as "the wild rose-briar" might be more attractive in fair weather, only friendship as "the holly-tree" blooms all year round.

Voltaire makes a similar case for friendship over love in "From Love to Friendship," describing love as easily lost and lamented but friendship as a sort of salvation, albeit less passionate.
