Marking My Globe With Your Friendships - Poem by Mary Nagy

I bought myself a globe
that shows me where you are.
I like to see if you are near
or if you're very far.

I've cut out little flags
and on them write your names.
So many are so far away
but I love you just the same.

My globe is getting covered
with these little flags with pins.
I think what you've all taught me
is that friendship always wins.

I hope to have a pin
in every space I see.
It's interesting to think of you
so far yet dear to me.

    Is mine a 'Union Jack' Mary? or is it a pretty coloured one. Lovely idea, Love Erenstine XXX (Report) Reply

    How sweet, he said, about 15 miles across the bay, to the east, from San Francisco! (Report) Reply
