Happy National Best Friends Day!
I met a solid rowing friend and asked about the Race. “How fared it
With the wind, ” I said, “When strike increased the pace?
You swung it forward mightily, you heaved it greatly back. “Your
Muscles rose in knotted lumps, I almost heard the crack. “And
While we roared we rattled too, your eyes were fixed like glue.
What thought went flying through your mind, how fared it, Five, with
You? But Five made answer solemnly, “I heard them fire a gun, “No
Other mortal thing I heard until the Race was done.”
