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 […]

Teach Us To Pray

This Christian rhyming poem is my personal interpretation of the way Jesus taught us to pray, (The Lord’s Prayer), in accordance with Matthew Chapter 6 verses 9 to 13

God’s Promises

This rhyming Christian inspirational poem is filled with God’s bible promises.     I looked at my day in the morning And said “Lord, I cannot get through it” “My child,” came the heavenly whisper “My promises will help you do it”

Awe and Wonder

  I was torn between including this nature poem in my Christian poetry or the nature category, as it combines my love and appreciation of spring with my Christian faith. However, I felt that it captured the gentility and the feelings that Springtime evokes, as well as having an unusual rhyme pattern, so I hope […]

The Message of God's Grace

The Message of God’s Grace

Ghastly Gases

  WARNING: This poem is not appropriate for adults! I was merely doing a sensible workshop on alliteration, when Hannah suggested the character “Burping Bailey”, and the poem went downhill with the story from there.  I personally am appalled at the end result, but I definately blame the children!

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!

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.

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!

humpty

Who Pushed Humpty?

    This silly story poem is not exactly an alternative nursery rhyme as it is not shadowing the original nursery rhyme but is using it just as the basis of an extended silly version of the tale, from the viewpoint of the suspects to the crime!
