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.

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.

Garden

The Garden Within

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

The Royal Reply

      This funny letter poem has rhyme, rhythm, and lots of word play in the appropriate language to make it suitable as a performance poem, imagined to be written as a reply from the queen to my Royal Pardon poem.  It is also an excellent example of alliteration and consonance poetry.

    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!

Bad Behaviour At The Alliteration Zoo

    I wrote this poem specifically as an example of alliteration poetry, demonstrating alliteration to children in an obvious and humorous way…

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!
