Who am i

Who Am I?

Christian Poetry 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… […]

Don’t Give Up

This Christian poem was written as an encouragement for a young girl who had attempted suicide at just 17 years old.   Today, a tear hit my pillow, A heaven-sent one from above Falling, as God held His arms out Longing to show you His love.

The Message of God's Grace

FUNNY / SILLY POEMS

Little Boy Blue Alternative

Little Boy Blue and Friends

  This creative alternative nursery rhyme definitely rates among my ‘unpleasant, childish’ silly poems and uses a list format to go through the colours. It has elements of alliteration throughout and uses hyperbole as humour.   Little Boy Green, go blow your nose; It’s constantly dripping all over your toes. But where is the boy […]

mary had a little lamb alternative

Mary and her Little Lamb

This alternative story of Mary and her little lamb includes the original simile and a new metaphor.  Other than that, is just a silly poem using the same rhyme and rhythm pattern, but telling an entirely different story with not quite the same pleasantries as the original nursery rhyme!

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.

Little Miss Muffet alternative

Little Miss Muffet (Alternative)

  This silly alternative nursery rhyme is a very basic adaptation of the original showing how a very simple alteration can make a big difference to the overall poem, whether it be to the emotion of a poem,  the humour, the story, or the outcome.  Making tiny adaptations like this help the beginner poet to […]

The Foul Creature

    This immature story poem began as a serious thoughtful mystery, but the rhyming led me elsewhere!
