Cattitude

      This cat poem is just a bit of rhyming fun with an obvious bit of word play in the title, but anyone who has ‘owned’ a cat will relate to the “Cattitude” that I am referring to!

My Bogie Collection

This disgusting (sorry!) list poem includes lots of moments of alliteration, but is too disgusting a topic for my daughter to allow me to read aloud!  For some reason, she thinks that I’m immature!

An Unfortunate Poo-em

  This shape poem, written with rhyme and rhythm, is a biographical poem, thanks to a very good friend of mine for sharing her private story with me……..Fortunately I am able to keep a secret, so the source of inspiration for this sorry tale shall remain anonymous!  The poem is nothing more than a funny […]

Laughter and Progress : Best Friends Forever

This story poem uses word play to make the case  that it’s good for education to be fun and that laughter helps us to make progress, whilst remembering that we must get the balance right too.  Read it, first of all as a story about Laughter and Progress as two living beings.  Then read it […]

The Royal Reply

      This funny letter poem has rhyme, rhythm, and lots of word play in the appropriate language to make it suitable as a performance poem, imagined to be written as a reply from the queen to my Royal Pardon poem.  It is also an excellent example of alliteration and consonance poetry.

Church, but not as we know it!

      This is just a silly children’s poem straight from my imagination, and is fortunately based only on jokes about church, and not on my own experience!  

Who am i

Who Am I?

This is another of my Christian encouragement poems, exploring the question “Who am I?” and recognising the unique value of every individual.   Today I met a stranger.  That stranger asked my name. I introduced myself to her and then she did the same.  But does my name say anything about the person… me? Does […]

Our Safe Place

This poem is intended to be placed somewhere in the home, identifying that place as somewhere to speak freely and openly about the things we find it hard to discuss.  My hope is that it will encourage the development of a feeling of safety, openness and honesty within families, so that feelings aren’t left buried […]

Thinking of You

This inspirational  Christian encouragement poem is a lovely reminder that God is ever-present.   It’s easy to feel un-noticed, Not knowing there’s someone to care: To quietly blend in the background, Assuming that no-one’s aware.
