White Girl-black Girl

White Girl black Girl short poem

Uploaded by Min Wil


One was just a little shy
the other just smiling wide
hand in hand they go their way
singing songs as they played

Neither noticed all the glares
they ran about without a care
climbing ladders, and swinging on swings
soaring high as birds with wings

They jumped and they fell and laughed till it hurt
they gathered leaves and played in the dirt
their dresses twirled as they spun about
they took turns seeing how loud they could shout

It was time to go their separate ways
starting to cool from the fading rays
they said “goodbye, see you again
we will be the best of friends.”
