National Best Friends Day

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.”


– Rower, politician, journalist, editor, and author, R.C. Lehman (January 3, 1856 – January 22, 1929)
