Love and Friendship by Emily Bronte
Number of Stanzas: 3
Number of Lines: 12
Rhyme: For the first two stanzas in this poem the 2nd and 4th lines rhyme. In the last stanza the 1st and 3rd lines rhyme and the 2nd and 4th lines rhyme
'Love is like the wild rose-briar, Friendship like the holly-tree' in these similes love is being compared to a wild rose-briar,which can symbolize passion. Friendship is being compared to a holly tree, which can symbolize peace.
The central message within the theme seems to be that no matter how beautiful love seems to be, it may not always turn out as one may hope. This poem portrays how someone can almost be deceived by the appeal of love, and how significant it is not to forget about strong friendships during that process. It is also shown that love may desert you or become weak and unpassionate, and friendship is more like the steady hand that will keep you still and on your feet during that time. So this poem shows that both love and friendship are important in relationships with others and how they can balance each other out.
Indirect meaning/ Feelings evoked
I think this poem indirectly expresses that friendship is everlasting even when love is not.
This poem evokes feelings of hope because it talks about how friendship can last even if relationships end.
Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree—
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?

The wild rose-briar is sweet in spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?

Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly’s sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He still may leave thy garland green.
