Blue Monday – Friendship   11 comments

Blue Monday

For Blue Monday this week, I am showing you my Russian Friends figurine and sharing a poem on Friendship!

Author Unknown

Friendship needs no studied phrases,
Polished face, or winning wiles;
Friendship deals no lavish praises,
Friendship dons no surface smiles.

Friendship follows Nature’s diction,
Shuns the blandishments of Art,
Boldly severs truth from fiction,
Speaks the language of the heart.

Friendship favors no condition,
Scorns a narrow-minded creed,
Lovingly fufills its mission,
Be it word or be it deed.

Frienship cheers the faint and weary,
Makes the timid spirit brave,
Warns the erring, lights the dreary,
Smooths the passage to the grave.

Friendship – pure, unselfish friendship,
All through life’s allotted span,
Nurtures, strengthens, widens, lengthens,
Man’s relationship with man.

  1. How perfectly beautiful! And the poem fits to a T.
    Happy Blue Monday!

    I obviously am having a problem with Mr. Linky and hope to get it straightened out before next week. Thanks for checking in.

  2. Very nice. Love the figurine and the poem…

  3. I like your figurine. It would look great right beside my Russian teapot. Have a wonderful day…

  4. What a beautiful blue item to share. The figurine is really stunning. I’ve never seen anything like it.

    take care,

  5. I love the poem, Lana! The figurine is beautiful too!

  6. Love that figurine, and you are so creative to share a poem with it! Great idea!

  7. I have a smaller, very similar figurine which was a gift when we flew first class on Aeroflot. (Instead of bumping us off the plane, they bumped us to first class. A very nice way to travel if you are in an airplane for twelve hours straight.) I had never seen one like it till now.

  8. Your little figurine is so sweet. Their little faces, their blue and white clothing make them just lovely. Thank you for sharing your Blue Monday.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog on Blue MOnday also. You are right about carrying a camera around. I have been doing more of that and I get so annoyed at me when I miss a good shot!

    Have a lovely day.

  9. Such sweet figurines and lovely poem to boot! ~ Robyn

  10. I love your figurine — expecially since it is blue and white!

  11. Hi! I was surfing and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. 🙂 Cheers! Sandra. R.
