The Ultimate Christmas Gift

    This Christmas performance poem is purpose written to be used to compliment my “Grandpa’s Nativity Story” nativity play, but can be used as a standalone poem too.   It uses a repeated refrain throughout the poem, plus an optional extension which could be used as part of a church sermon.

Always and Forever

Christian Poetry This Christian inspirational poem is a lovely reminder of how precious each of us are. At dawn, the sun always rises; By evening, it’s sure to set. A promise of our God eternal: A God who can never forget.

A Prayer Against Depression

Christian Poetry A Christian encouragement poem relating to the battle against depression and the feelings it creates.                   Why is it, when I’m in a crowd, I still feel so alone? How come I’m labelled ‘popular’, and yet feel so unknown?   And all this isolation, why […]

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.

FUNNY / SILLY POEMS

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.

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.

Little Boy Blue Alternative

Little Boy Blue and Friends

  This creative alternative nursery rhyme definitely rates among my ‘unpleasant, childish’ silly poems and uses a list format to go through the colours. It has elements of alliteration throughout and uses hyperbole as humour.   Little Boy Green, go blow your nose; It’s constantly dripping all over your toes. But where is the boy […]

A Poem for the Teacher

  I wrote this poem on one of those occasions when I wanted to write a poem, but couldn’t think of anything to write about – so that became my topic!   I’ve got to write a poem, I don’t know what to say. The trouble is, my teacher wants it handing in today.

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!
