My Friends

One friend, two friends, three and four,
Who is the friend that I like more?
Richard lets me ride his bike;
Sarah knows the songs I like.
Kim and I can draw quite well;
Janet likes me, I can tell.
Carlos calms my fear of math;
Katie gave my dog a bath!
David’s stories make me smile;
Rosa makes the day worthwhile.
Each friend has a special way—
I think I’ll ask them all to play!
