Friendship Fortnight 2020: Since Maya got a telescope…

ff20xThis is the second of Maitreyi Kaptijn’s selections.




Since Maya got a telescope,
I’ve learned the names of stars.
Now adam does gymnastics, so
I’m swinging from the bars.
Jill bakes a pie. I bake a pie.
This contest never ends.

Who knew there was so much to do
To keep up with my friends?
