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 […]

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.

Do you see an old hag, or a beautiful young woman wearing a choker, and with her head turned away?

FUNNY / SILLY POEMS

A Bitter Pill

      This is just a fun rhyme and rhythm story poem, including exaggeration for effect (hyperbole), with one word play phrase too.  It is based on a true scenario that anyone who has ever owned a tom cat will probably be able to relate to!

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 […]

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!      

Humpty Dumpty

A Day in the Life of Humpty Dumpty

  These are a couple of creatively silly Humpty Dumpty alternative poems that are firm favourites with the children in my Fun With Poetry assemblies.  There is a token gesture of hyperbole used as humour, but otherwise they are  just funny poems!   Humpty Dumpty sat on my knee Humpty Dumpty had a great wee

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 […]
