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 […]

Mary and her Little Lamb

This alternative story of Mary and her little lamb includes the original simile and a new metaphor.  Other than that, is just a silly poem using the same rhyme and rhythm pattern, but telling an entirely different story with not quite the same pleasantries as the original nursery rhyme!

Alliteration Al

Alliteration Al

  An Alliteration Poem , specifically written for the purposes of demonstrating alliteration.  (Please note that I have used something called “poetic license” here, which basically means that poets can get away with anything! )   However, please make sure that you spell the word “Thankyou” correctly or I will be in trouble with the spelling police!

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.

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.
