CHRISTIAN POEMS

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 […]

New Life in Christ

A very specific poem from my Christian poetry, focussing on the life changing effect of becoming a Christian.   Christ came to give us freedom, New attitude of mind……. To heal the broken-hearted The weak, infirm and blind.

Don’t Worry

This Christian inspirational poem is available as a beautiful pastoral card and is a reassuring encouragement to those facing a difficult decision or future.   Don’t worry about your tomorrows, God’s holding them all in His hand; You don’t need to know where they’re leading, God’s purpose is perfectly planned.

Stephen’s Boat: A Story Poem of God’s Love

A Poem of God’s Love   A big “Thank you !” to Rev. Alistair Sharp and his Dad for this beautiful story which, between them they have told and continually developed for years, and which I have thoroughly enjoyed retelling as a story poem about God’s love.   One day a boy named Stephen made a […]

Advent

 A Christmas Poem This Christian Christmas poem highlights the reason for the season.   Advent: a time for preparing, for Jesus’ arrival is near. Yet, is it His birth we remember: our focus at this time of year? Where does Jesus fit in our advent?  Do we even notice he’s there? And as we are […]

FUNNY / SILLY POEMS

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!

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.

Bradley Mulladley Mulloon

  Bradley Mulladley Mulloon This is known as a nonsense poem for obvious reasons!  One of my favourite poets is Dr Seuss who wrote “The Cat in The Hat”, and I’ve tried to copy his style here by repeating one rhyming phoneme all the way through, spelt in the same way.  Dr Seuss often did […]

A Topsy Turvy World

      This zany poem is full of all my imaginative wonderings about the world and how it was designed, and includes lots of alliteration.  Try redesigning the world yourself, and think through all of the consequences; it’s a fun exercise!

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!
