A Wii Celebration

A Poem for the Teacher

  I wrote this poem on one of those occasions when I wanted to write a poem, but couldn’t think of anything to write about – so that became my topic!   I’ve got to write a poem, I don’t know what to say. The trouble is, my teacher wants it handing in today.

CHRISTIAN POEMS

A Prayer for Guidance

Christian Poetry Another of my Christian poems, this prayer is written in the style of a list poem, prayerfully asking God for help in making decisions.     What should I do?  Who should I be? What life has God prepared for me?

Garden

The Garden Within

Inspirational Poem   This inspirational metaphor poem is another example of figurative language, with occasional use of alliteration.   Guard your heart always, for there you will find That delicate feelings and thoughts are entwined.
