A Short Friendship Poem

Faithful Friend 

I want a warm and faithful friend, 
To cheer the adverse hour;
Who ne'er to flatter will descend, 
Nor bend the knee to power, - 
A friend to chide me when I'm wrong
My inmost soul to see;
And that my friendship prove as strong
For him as his for me. 

Poet - John Quincy Adams

John Quincy Adams, once wrote, "Could I have chosen my own genius and condition, I would have made myself a great poet."
 Although literary fame would escape the sixth president of the United States, throughout his life he was a serious reader and writer of poetry.
