Most Friendship is Feigning...

I don't know why .. But from morning I keep remembering poetry verses from memory.

This one has been rhyming in my head for about 2 days now... !!!
This is for Helen (Antipas) Ma'm, who taught me this poem...

Most Friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly ...

Here is the full text :-

As you Like It :- Act 2 Scene 7

Blow, blow, thou winter wind.
Thou art not so unkind
As man’s ingratitude.
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.
Heigh-ho, sing heigh-ho, unto the green holly.
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly.
Then heigh-ho, the holly.
This life is most jolly.
Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
That dost not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot.
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As friend remembered not.
Heigh-ho, sing heigh-ho, unto the green holly.
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly.
Then heigh-ho, the holly.
This life is most jolly.
