IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Please accept my apologies for the recent difficulties that the site has experienced and the loss of some links and images. I am doing my best to resolve these issues, but I am just one person using my spare time to keep this site running for you, so please bear with me.

Ultimately, time allowing, I hope to have a more complete, improved site by the end of 2015, so PLEASE BEAR WITH ME.

In the meantime, if there is a particular page, topic or poem that you have lost access to and need, please email me at angelaspoems@googlemail.com and I shall be happy to prioritise that part of the site and email you when it's ready for full use again.

Many thanks to all of those who have encouraged me to continue building this site over the past 4 or 5 years. I promise to persevere.

THANKYOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND SUPPORT

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 […]

The Ultimate Christmas Gift

    This Christmas performance poem is purpose written to be used to compliment my “Grandpa’s Nativity Story” nativity play, but can be used as a standalone poem too.   It uses a repeated refrain throughout the poem, plus an optional extension which could be used as part of a church sermon.

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 […]

A Poetic Nature Trail

A Poetic Nature Trail   This children’s poem is full of alliteration and word play, with some hyperbole (exaggeration for effect) and similes and metaphors.  The poem is deliberately written to be ‘performed’ by a teacher, as if on a nature trail, with the purpose of encouraging children that they could be undiscovered poets.
