(Emily Kim, April 15, 2016)

Introduction by Cherie Rolfe:  My student, Emily Kim of Rochester Hills is a fifth grade student at Brewster Elementary School. We did a poetry unit together and she has continued to write. In the “Emily Dickinson tradition,” we titled this poem “A friend doesn’t need to be a work of art.”

A Friend Doesn’t Need to Be a Work of Art

blumz01A friend doesn’t need to be a work of art, just have a heart.

A friend doesn’t need fur or hair to care.

A friend doesn’t have a thing to do but like you.

A friend doesn’t need to say a word to be heard.

It’s not so hard to be a friend in the end.

-Emily Kim
