Friends

SHAKING HANDS

I haven't seen you in a while
yet I often imagine
all your expressions
I haven't spoken to you recently
but many times
I hear your thoughts
Good friends must not always
be together
It is the feeling of oneness
when distant
that proves a lasting friendship

Priceless Gifts

Life holds so many priceless things
The falling rain...the wind that sings
Each star on high...a big full moon
And sunbeams dancing in your room.

MOUNTAIN SCENERY

The river as is rushes on
A sunset when the day is gone
No wealth can buy a mountain tall
These priceless things belong to all.

An autumn tree lends beauty rare
With leaves piled deep most everywhere
As nature wears a glowing smile
to make each day a day worthwhile.

Could anything be quite as dear
as laughing children that we hear
The gift of our friendship that is ours
The miracle of growing flowers.

Each magic moment treasured time
These priceless gifts are yours and mine.

Me And My Giant

A GIANT CARTOON MOUSE

I have a friend who is a giant,
And he lives where the tall weeds grow.
He's high as a mountain and wide as a barn,
and I only come up to his toe, you know,
I only come up to his toe.

When the daylight grows dim I talk with him
Way down in the marsy sands,
and his ear is too far away to hear,
But still he understands, he 'stands,
I know he understands.

For we have a code called the "scratch-tap code,"
And here is what we do-
I scratch his toe...once means, "Hello"
And twice means, "How are you?"
Three means, "Does it look like rain?"
Four times means, "Don't cry."
Five times means, "I'll scratch you a joke."
And six times means, "Goodbye," "Goodbye," "Goodbye,"
Six times means, "Goodbye."

And he answers me by tapping his toe-
Once means, "Hello, friend."
Two taps means, "It's very nice to feel your scratch again."
Three taps means, "It's lonely here
With my head in the top of the sky."
Four taps means, "Today an eagle smiled as she flew by."
Five taps means, "Opps, I just bumped
my head against the moon."
Six means, "Sigh" and seven means, "Bye"
And eight means, "Come back soon, soon, soon,"
Eight means, "Come back soon."

And then I scratch a thousand times,
And he taps with a bappity-bimm,
And he laughs so hard he shakes the sky-
That means I'm tickling him!

Shel Silverstein

To A Friend

When the moon's splendor shines in a clear sky,
Stand outside and gaze at heaven's brightness,
THE MOON, SUN AND OTHER PLANETS Marveling how the pure lamp of the moon
Embraces in its beauty two dear friends
In body separate, but bound in mind by love.
Though face to loving face we may not look,
Yet let this light assure us of our love.
Your faithful friends sends you these small verses,
And if on your part friendship's bond stays firm,
May strength and joy be with you all your days!

Walafrid Strabo (809-49)

Moving

We are moving away
So I must say good-bye

MAP OF USA

To my room and my swing
And the sweet part of sky
That sometimes hangs blue
And sometimes hangs gray
Over the fields
Where I used to play.
Good-bye to my old friends
Jason and Sue
They wave from their porches,
Are they crying too?
The moving truck rumbles
Past all I know -
The school and the woods
And the creek down below.
And everything seems
To be pleading
"Don't go!"

When You Can Read

When you can read, then you can go
from Kalamazoo to Idaho-
Or read directions that explain
just how to build a model plane-
Or bake a cake or cook a stew-
The words will tell you what to do!
When you can read, then you can play
a brand new game the proper way-
Or get a letter from a friend
and read it...to the very end.
