              • When: romantic period
              • Why: as a warning to others
              • What: poem, story
              • This poem, written by the young woman Emily Bronte, is the story of how friendship is constant whereas love is fleeting. At the begining of the poem she sets the question that she then answers:"But which will bloom most constantly?" in referral to the plants she just allocated to love and friendship.
        • Love is nice occasionally, it 'adds' something to your life; but when it's gone it will feel so unfair and cruel
          • Now get rid of the silly love and enjoy the friendship, when your partner leaves and damages you, hope he doesn't damage the friendship.
