CHRISTIAN POEMS

Creation

  This Christian inspirational poem is written as a letter to God, thanking Him for the gift of creation.   I cannot help but be amazed When I think of creation. Not just about the place I live, But the whole compilation.The fact that every part of earth Works hand in hand together; The animals, […]

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 […]

A Fresh Start

  This is one of many of my inspirational Christian poems.  Feel free to share it with someone who will find it an encouragement.   When you need a hope to cling to When your world is dull and grey When your life is wrapped in darkness And there’s no sign of the day…

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!  

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. Each must be tended and nurtured and fed Or weeds can develop and grow there instead.

FUNNY / SILLY POEMS

My Sister is a Bookworm

This poem begins very sensibly, but the rhyming led me in a totally different direction…..so I followed and the story developed from there!  Check out the amount of alliteration in verse 3!

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!

Food

Healthy Food

The humour in this silly healthy food poem is in the use of lots of word play and hyperbole (exaggeration for effect), with the occasional metaphor, and a tiny amount of alliteration.

Royal-Apology-image_thumb.png

A Royal Apology

  This is a funny letter poem, written with rhyme and rhythm, and including lots of word play (of the toilet humour variety!) and occasional moments of alliteration.  It is the third poem in a trilogy which needs to be read in order to understand the content.
