    "The April rain, the April rain,
    Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
    Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
    And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
    And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
    The cuckoo through the April rain
    Calls once again."

    - Mathilde Blind - "April Rain"


     I wish you dear Friend a weekend with peace
    and that you enjoy Mother Earth beauty.

    very little children for the hearts
    of the little children are pure.
    Therefore, the Great Spirit
    may show to them many things
    which older people miss."

    What if you slept?
    And what if,
    in your sleep, you dreamed?
    And what if, in your dream,
    you went to heaven
    and there plucked a strange
    and beautiful flower?
    And what if,
    when you awoke,
    you had the flower in your hand?
    Ah, what then?

    - Samuel Taylor Coleridge -


    ... I wish you my dear Friend
     a week full of dreams

    Good Bye Moon

    We have roamed the wild country
    We have seen mountains grow from hills
    With my brothers and sisters
    And now our time has came
    The two-legs have come in
    And killed all of our prey
    We are all so confused
    Because what have we done?
    The two-legs killed my mother
    My brothers and sisters too
    The two-legs has got me.
    I'll be with my family soon.
    Now the two-legs is over me
    As I get one last look
    At my boloved moon.

    "The Beautiful Earth"

    The glistening sun is shining
    On the sparkling water,
    The sparkling water is
    To the pretty ocean,
    The pretty ocean
    is as beautiful
    As a bachelor button flower,
    The bachelor
    button flower is
    yellow and blue
    Like the sunset sky,
    The sunset sky is giving
    peace to the Earth!

    What is a Poem
     A poem is hidden in the soundlessspeechless soft clouds
    Tossing turning twisting
    in the crystal clear aquamarine sky
    Look inside a pleasing pretty flower
    Climb immeasurable immenseimpressive mountains
    If you find a poem handle it carefully
    Like a newborn puppy
    For a poem can die or slip through fingers
    Like creamy butter
    And be lost in the dark streets
    Look in places where you
     have never been before
    And there you might find a poem
    Lost somewhere in the soft clouds
    The clear sky or a pretty flower
    Waiting for you!
    by Amber Hickman (aged 8)

    Have a great week

    Our Friendship

    Our friendship is like an ocean
    That goes down so deep
    I compare it like a rose
    Whose beauty you want to keep.

    Our friendship is like a river
    That I know will never end
    I see it like a dove
    With a beautiful message to send.

    Our friendship is like a song
    That goes on and on forever
    It is in our hearts prisoner
    That will be free for ever.

    Forever Friends

    Words could never tell you
    How important you'll always be,
    Just little things that you do
    That are especially meant for me.
    You always seem to remember
    All the things to do.
    That makes friends last forever,
    And share a bond so true.
    I'm so glad God gave to me
    Someone just like you.
    He knew that you would be
    One of the chosen few!

    A true Friend

    A true friend never walks away
    A true friend will always stay
    A true friend looks out for you

    A true friend tries to make you smile
    Tries to replace that frown
    They may not always succeed
    But they rarely let you down

    My arms for you are open
    This heart for you does care
    And when I think you need me
    I'll try to always be there.

    There's nothing as nice
    As someone who shares,
    Your laughter, your secrets,
    Your wishes and cares,
    Someone who's there
    Through your good times and tears,
    Who stays by your side
    As your friend through the years.

    Standing by,
    All the way.
    Here to help you through your day.

    Holding you up,
    When you are weak,
    Helping you find what it is you seek.

    Catching your tears,
    When you cry.
    Pulling you through when the tide is high.

    Just being there,
    Through thick and thin,
    All just to say, you are my friend.

    ... have a wonderful weekend my dear friend

    It's so hard to find the perfect breeze,
    One blowing none too hard nor soft,
    Carrying a scent of wild flowers,
    And moving clouds about aloft.

    It's so hard to find the perfect sky,
    One blue and deep and bright,
    Carrying a sense of openness
    With geese and wrens in flight.

    It's so hard to find the perfect night,
    One warm, quiet and unflawed,
    Carrying a mood of solitude,
    And a closeness to the Earth.

    Yet no perfection's so hard to find
    As that which you extend
    And none I'll ever treasure more,
    Than to simply be your friend.
