Unknown Author<br />Title: My New Best Friend<br />Author: Unknown<br />Today I met a great new friend    Who knew me right away It was funny how she understood    All I had to say <br />She listened to my problems    She listened to my dreams We talked about love and life    She&apos;d been there, too, it seems <br />I never once felt judged by her    She knew just how I felt She seemed to just accept me    And all the problems I&apos;d been dealt She didn&apos;t interrupt me    Or need to have her say She just listened very patiently    And didn&apos;t go away <br />I wanted her to understand    How much this meant to me But as I went to hug her    Something startled me <br />I put my arms in front of me    And went to pull her nearer And realized that my new best friend    Was nothing but a mirror <br />Element: Rhyme<br />Intermediate level<br />
  46. 46. Unknown Author<br />Title: The Oyster<br />Author: unknown<br />There once was an oyster<br />Whose story I tell,<br />Who found that some sand<br />Had got into his shell.<br />It was only a grain,<br />But it gave him great pain.<br />For oysters have feelings<br />Although they’re so plain. <br />Now, did he berate<br />The harsh working of fate<br />That had brought him<br />To such a deplorable state?<br />Did he curse at the government,<br />Cry for election,<br />And claim that the sea should<br />Have given him protection? <br />No – he sad to himself<br />As he lay on a shell,<br />Since I cannot remove it,<br />I shall try to improve it.<br />Now the years have rolled around,<br />As the years always do,<br />And he came to his ultimate<br />Destiny – stew. <br />And the small grain of sand<br />That had bothered him so<br />Was a beautiful pearl<br />All richly aglow.<br />Now the tale has a moral;<br />For isn’t it grand<br />What an oyster can do<br />With a morsel of sand? <br />What couldn’t we do<br />If we’d only begin<br />With some of the things<br />That get under our skin.<br />Element: Rhyme & personification<br />Intermediate level<br />
