Ode To My Friend Kate
Lauren Mason, Grade 8, Monaro High School
Kate, you're great to be around,
I first saw you from across the kindergarten room,
And not long afterwards, we were friends.
When I'm bored, you cheer me up.
I love your hair and smile.
You're great at running and beat me every time.
You always get a good start.
Everything around you is happy and smiling;
the people and objects near you look brighter.
But you keep on laughing,
Taking no notice,
Because you are my good friend.
