Friend of Nobody
Friend of Nobody :
Do you like making friends?
Do you like to share your things with others?
Do you think there is any child who has no friends?
She had some sweets that she wouldn’t share,
She had a book that she wouldn’t lend,
She wouldn’t let anyone play with her doll,
She’s nobody’s friend!
He had some toffee, and ate every bit,
He had a tricycle he wouldn’t lend,
He never let anyone play with his train,
He’s nobody’s friend!
But I’ll share all of my sweets with you,
My ball and my books and my games I will lend,
Here’s half my apple and half my cake
- I’m your friend!
The word POETRY originates from a Greek word meaning TO MAKE. A poet is thus a maker and the poem something that is made or created. No single definition of poetry is possible but some characteristic features of poetry may be mentioned. Poetry has a musical quality with rhythm, pitch, metre and it may use figures of speech such as simile and metaphor. While quite a few poems in this selection are in traditional forms, the unit also includes modern poems that are free from formal restrictions.
Here is a list of English Poems written by various authors. Whatever the question is, poetry may be the answer. Writers say poetry provides them with comfort, a way to express themselves and the discipline of finding the essence with few words. Writing the poem (and finding just the right word) is the measure of success that the authors use. Really good poetry is instinctive. It’s who you are. It’s from the heart. You need to expose yourself to all kinds of poets and you may find your motivation and muse that way. Poetry gets to the core meaning. Poetry expands ideas.
