A Sonnet

My Friend the Mollydooker

by Dolly'sPoems


Since we were young she featured in my life,
a friend who seemed to always be around;
we argued sometimes, families with strife,
and our escape was youthful common ground.

Her views were often different from mine,
but friendship won because we knew each other-
and from the age of eight we were inclined,
to thrash out every argument all summer!

She became my rock, my confidant,
through thick and thin we always kept in touch;
although her politics came from the heart,
we never did agree-- but still had lunch!

When friends can overcome their differences,
they join together with no false pretences.

 



Recognized


Helen (Lyenochka) introduced a word in one of her posts called (Mollydooker) this refers to someone with left wing views. I loved the word and decided to write about my lifelong friend who I admire very much, except for her politics!
