Word Work


Building  “S” words with letter tiles,
Having fun together.
Make whole word,
Shout hurray!


Friendship Lament


Friends to talk to,
Friends who love me
For who I am.

Friends to talk to about:
Favorite Disney movies
My own, strange obsessions.

Is it too selfish?
Is it too much to ask?

Other people ask for more, too much.
Why do they socialize such?
Why do they have many friends,
More than me?

Why are unkind people popular?
Why are nicer people weird and uncool,
Just like in high school?

Waiting For Spring Buds


Trees, outnumbered by
Wait for buds.
Buds on one tree,
Buds on shrubs.

Please come soon, friend!
Where are you?
I’m waiting for my bud,



What is trust?

Sitting with your new teacher,

Being a friend to someone different,

Telling a secret,

Finding comfort in a new place.

Where can you see trust?

The eyes of a baby

The eyes of a stray dog

The eyes of a young otter,

Saved from an oil spill.

Where can you feel trust?

A strong friendship,

A loving family,

A tight-nit community,

The heart of a brave soul.

Where can you hear trust?

In a cherished secret,

In a request to guard treasure,

In the whimper of a hungry creature,

To someone he’s never seen.

What Friends Do


With a friend, you can

Be fairies and work magic,

Fly kites,

Look at flowers,


Put on shows.


With a friend,

You can goof around,

Tell silly puns,

And laugh.


Friends give you energy,

So you can be maniacs,

And monkey about!

But you’ll stick together

Even when it’s quiet time!


A friend will help

If you’re upset,

Even when it’s hard.


Whether itty-bitty,

Or very tall,

A friend is more precious

Than any jewel.


It’s nice to know,

A true friend

Will never betray you.

At the end of the day,

The week,

The month,

The year,

Your friendship will live on.
