The Telephone Call
By Jack Prelutsky

I was mad and I was sad
and I was all upset,
I couldn't go outside to play,
the weather was too wet.
But then my best friend called me up
with lots of things to say,
we made each other giggle,
I felt better right away.
When you can't think of things to do
and the rain won't ever end,
it's nice to have a telephone
to share things with your friend.
