My Friends

    “My Friends,” Friend, Sept. 2009, 39

    My Friends

    One friend, two friends, three and four,

    Who is the friend that I like more?

    Richard lets me ride his bike;

    Sarah knows the songs I like.

    Kim and I can draw quite well;

    Janet likes me, I can tell.

    Carlos calms my fear of math;

    Katie gave my dog a bath!

    David’s stories make me smile;

    Rosa makes the day worthwhile.

    Each friend has a special way—

    I think I’ll ask them all to play!
