February - Make a Friend Day

Post by Maxim Trevelyan » Thu Feb 01, 2018 6:20 pm

On February 11th, people around the world are encouraged to forge new relationships on Make a Friend Day.

Did you know that the longest friendship bracelet was created by Benchmark Senior Living and was 660.48m (2,166 ft. 11 in.) long?

To complete this challenge, I want you to pick a friend and write a poem of any kind about them, at least 15 lines long. If you want, you can also make a poem from the point of view of a fictional character. Make sure your poem abides by all HOL rules.

For 20 Hoots and 20 beans, post your poem as a reply to this thread by February 28th 11:59pm HOL time at the latest.

Chesterhorse, oh Chesterhorse
never underestimate
a Chesterhorse
if his ears are up
he's out in front
he keeps on a trottin'
there's strength
in his trottin'
and speed and beauty
all rolled up in one

You'll find him
going up a rocky mountain
fording rough and
dangerous rivers
never stumble
sure-footed
like a goat!

Chesterhorse, oh Chesterhorse
never underestimate
a Chesterhorse
if his ears are up
he's out in front
he keeps on a trottin'
there's strength
in his trottin'

Met her was like a wind ..
Be friend with her is like a dream ..
She is a treasure soul,
brave and never foul ..
She is beside me when i small,
sometimes we kids sometimes we fall.
The times clicks on
our lives go on..
Now we face each other in different tones..
ring the music on our own..
I choose left.. She choose right..
But that doesn't mean without each other we all right.
Keep moving not mean leaving
once a time, we still meeting
making memories.. building relationship.
Because facing the world of wind and cloud..
Having a friend in this matter
Will always making you stronger... :wub:

Auggie you are a wonderful friend
I will stay with you till the end
I know I didn’t always stick by you
During everything that we’ve been through

But please, hear me out
Did you hear Julian shout?
When I punched him in the face
For making fun of your face

I know when you were as Darth Vader
And I was dressed as a sailor
I said bad things about you
I never meant it, it’s all not true

I hope we can be friends again
And when we go to Maine
We can still be friends, under the sky starry
And so I have to say: I’m sorry.

I can't forget the way you walk, the way you run
It's etched inside my memory
Lighting up the darkness like the beginning of a good story

We often read those books
Fairy tales of princesses and faraway lands
But you were stolen away too just like them

The story was no longer fun.

But we kept moving forward
thrusting our swords into dragons marking our path
We made a way to each other again
No more tower room for us, for me, for you.

We watched the stars, twinkle, twinkle
And you held my hand
Spirits intertwining so we can never separate

Friends are forever, you said
Friends are for always
I believed every word and held it to my heart
Because no matter how far we grow apart
our dragons keep us united.
