This is a meaningful poem that shows how tight a friendship is.
I was in Kindergarten
I had a good friend.
She was kind, caring, funny, and wild.
We were together for 4 years.
It was until 4th grade, until we got the shock of our lives.
I was going to change schools.
No, this couldn't be. I thought.
She was my best friend.
We can not be separated.
The day before I had to leave,
My friend told me,
that we would always remember each other,
no matter what.
We made that promise, and then,
I had to leave.
My eyes, watered with hurt.
A few years later,
I was shopping with my family,
and had a new best friend with me.
she was also just as kind, caring, funny, and wild.
There was a girl with black silky hair and pure black eyes, looking at me.
Who was that? I wondered.
Suddenly, it hit me. It was my very best friend from that same school we went to together.
I thought we would be separated, forever.
From that day on, I got her contact,
hoping we wouldn't be separated again.
The simplicity of the poems and the deep care and love for relationships
Delicate petals and soft flowers
Are cozy seats for bugs
Bees eat the delicious nectar
off the flowers.
Love these lines. These lines so aptly describes the nature during spring time❤️❤️
Takes the reader there to wonderful setting of a beautiful spring day with the shining sun, flowers, soft and delicate petals, the bees, the smell of spring!
Nora touched all my senses with the sun, the flowers with the delightful smells, the cozy soft petals, the thunder! Very well written and takes the reader to the beautiful setting created by the poem.
Wonders of Nature
I can imagine the scene with the animals playing by the creek.
Amazing how she talks about saying goodbye to childhood being a child herself! Time does go by fast.
It is so true and from the heart. Friendship is like a seed!
I love this poem because by the end, I realize that she’s making a subtle but powerful connection between the animals she writes about and childhood. I first visualize animals playing but by the end I visualize children instead. It brings nostalgia to the reader and is very powerful!
What a powerful and perfect simile to compare friendship to a seed! Both are powerful and life affirming, and I love how the author uses the word “deep” both literally for a seed, and metaphorically for friendship. Very honest and powerful!
A beautiful poem, because it transports the reader to that essence of spring, that we all know and love. I can see and smell all the sites. My favorite part is how she compares the petals of flowers to being cozy seats for bugs. Wonderful imagery and use of metaphors.
Beautiful imagery! A great poem because it transports the reader to that special essence of spring which everyone loves!
Beautiful imagery! I can see the sun and bees, and smell the flowers and spring smell. The best poem because it transports you emotionally. Wonderful!
