Since it's National Poet's Day, I thought it might be nice to include some encouraging poetry about friendships. Poetry can speak to us in a whole different way than other types of literature, so it can reach deep down and get us thinking in a new way.
Of course, writing poetry is a healthy way to examine your feelings as well. If you've been hurt or confused by friendship, you might find that writing poetry will help you sort things out. If you're happy about the good friends in your life, poetry can give you an outlet for that, too.
For this particular request, I'm looking for poems that celebrate friendship. No sad or depressing poems this time, because we want to encourage everyone to make their friendships better. If you've written a poem you'd like to share, consider sending it to us for publication on the site.
