A Child’s Letter to God

        This letter poem is all written in rhyme and rhythm and was inspired by 7 year old Beth, who was waiting until her brother’s birthday to send her letter to God on the helium balloon when the birthday was over!  I loved the idea, so this poem was born……    

Full Christmas story

The Full Christmas Story

      This Christmas poem was purpose written to be used at the end of my rhyming Christmas nativity play “Children’s Nativity Story” and reminds us that the birth of the baby Jesus was just the beginning of the story of Jesus.

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.

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.

This story poem uses word play to make the case  that it’s good for education to be fun and that laughter helps us to make progress, whilst remembering that we must get the balance right too.  Read it, first of all as a story about Laughter and Progress as two living beings.  Then read it […]

A Royal Pardon

  This is the ultimate poem to demonstrate alliteration for kids with an enormous amount of alliteration and assonance in it, as well as the use of word play as a punchline.  It is part of a trilogy of poems which include consonance, language styles in performance poems, letter poems and word play.

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.
