Thanks, WP. My comment section is back so I will be catching up on them. Lack of sleep makes me super cranky and losing an hour due to DLST, it’s just worse. I’m going to start here with my stanza study.
With arms and vestments friends
should each other gladden, those which are
in themselves most sightly. Givers and
requiters are longest friends, if all goes well.
One should not have too much need of the goods
he has gotten. Often one squanders
on enemies what was intended for loved ones.
Many affairs go awry.
So here it seems that the stanza suggests that you should not be greedy and give up everything seeking material items along with money. Then the last two stanzas illustrate how some people don’t recognize the true friends from the false friends and spends too much on the false. It reminds me of people only want to be your friend because of what you may have to offer or what they can get from you. Perhaps lack of wealth, living comfortably and have real friends is the lesson in this stanza.
Happy Tuesday Y’all!
