10: Since Hanna Moved Away By Judith Viorst The tires on my bike are flat. The sky is grouchy gray. At least it sure feels like that Since Hanna moved away. Chocolate ice cream tastes like prunes. December's come to stay. They've taken back the Mays and Junes Since Hanna moved away.
11: Flowers smell like halibut. Velvet feels like hay. Every handsome dog's a mutt Since Hanna moved away. Nothing's fun to laugh about. Nothing's fun to play. They call me, but I won't come out Since Hanna moved away.
17: "They are still loyal to me for life, and me to them" (Pg 13). -LaVaughn, True Believer
18: "If there is a Hell, it's when we stop caring about each other" (Pg 228). -the minister, True Believer
20: Be A Friend by Edgar A. Guest Be a friend. You don't need money; Just a disposition sunny; Just the wish to help another Get along some way or other; Just a kindly hand extended Out to one who's unbefriended; Just the will to give or lend, This will make you someone's friend. Be a friend. You don't need glory. Friendship is a simple story. Pass by trifling errors blindly, Gaze on honest effort kindly, Cheer the youth who's bravely trying, Pity him who's sadly sighing; Just a little labor spend On the duties of a friend.
21: Be a friend. The pay is bigger (Though not written by a figure) Than is earned by people clever In what's merely self-endeavor. You'll have friends instead of neighbors For the profits of your labors; You'll be richer in the end Than a prince, if you're a friend.
22: "We don't have to say it in words, it just is" (Pg 13). -LaVaughn, True Believer
23: Together By Paul Engle Because we do All things together All things improve, Even weather. Our daily meat And bread taste better, Trees are greener, Rain is wetter.
24: What Is A True Friend? | The first words someone thinks of, When describing a true friend, Is that they're caring and accepting, And loyal 'til the end. There's much more to a true friend, Than simple little traits. It's how they act and what they say, That make them a soul mate. Whenever you have problems, You can call one on the phone, They'll lift the weight off of your shoulders, And put the burden on their own.
25: A true friend will stay up with you, All hours of the night, To gossip, joke, and giggle, And have a pillow fight. They are a keeper of you secrets, When you're down, they make you laugh. Together you're invincible, They are your second half.
27: The Opposite of Two By Richard Wilbur What is the opposite of two? A lonely me, a lonely you.
28: Which One? Best Friend: Noun "The one friend who Is closest To you." "Practically a member Of your family." "A person Who knows you better Than you know yourself." "A companion Who is always there To talk
29: And can always Make you laugh." "A human being Who can be trusted With all of your secrets." All are sufficient definitions And descriptions. Which one is right? Or are they all?
