A witty and affectionate friendship poem. All about friends - the fabulous female ones, that is! Can be adapted to suit the recipient.
Our funny, heartfelt friend print makes the perfect gift for a best friend - whether it's her birthday, christmas, or a special occasion like being a bridesmaid.
The poem is a very unique gift for a treasured friend. The print comes unframed but we would be happy to frame it for you (see below).
Written by Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller, this poem began as a gift for her sister. It led to Bespoke Verse's range of 'What is a...?' poems that have featured in magazines such as VOGUE and Easy Living.
Whether she's a listening ear, a tireless shopper or a birthday surpriser, everyone will recognise the bond described in 'What is a Friend?'
For an additional fee, you can add a message at the bottom. To do this we remove lines 18 & 20 and change the order of the lines at the end.
What is a Friend?
A winer, a diner, an outfit designer
A ringer, a bringer, a karaoke singer
A meeter, a greeter, a chocolate eater
A debater, relater, a smile reinstater.
A lift provider, an on-your-sider
A diva, a bopper, a tireless shopper
A lender, a sender, a book recommender
A snorter, a sniggerer, infectious giggler.
A baker, a caker, a mate mickey-taker
An ally, a sister, a gentle arm twister
A lip-gloss provider, a secret confider
A thinker, a winker, a latte drinker.
A texter, a writer, a party inviter
A colleague, a carer, a problem-sharer
A cocktail blender & cheeky rule bender
A gossipy chatterer, forgiver & flatterer.
A handbag borrower, a ring-tomorrower
A holiday planner, a poolside tanner (line 18)
A ‘stop for a cuppa’, a date fixer-upper
A free babysitter & fellow keep-fitter. (line 20)
A listening ear, a loyal volunteer
A welcome inquisitor, spare bed visitor
A misser, a kisser, a cinema hisser
A fellow fat-fighter, a stay late at nighter
A birthday surpriser & cherished adviser
A laugher, a kidder, anxiety ridder...
That’s what makes a friend!
