Friendship - Poem by Dave Pass
We are not islands unto ourselves.
We all need to be part of the main.
None of us learn much on separate shelves.
With communication and sharing we gain.
We learn from the knowledge of others.
We can also learn from their mistakes.
It's good to have sisters and brothers.
To help us see truth from lies and fakes.
Many sports need a bit of teamwork.
And my passion was climbing on rocks.
Out in sunshine but also in mirk.
Seeing an eagle, badger or fox.
Climbing with ropes needs a friend and you.
When you lead there's a belay below.
In go chocks, nuts and a sling or two.
Then you belay, your friend can follow.
You don't need a constant yakety-yak.
Just a few views that you can both share.
Then the descent on a mountain track.
A pub for a pint and thoughts to air.
