Church, but not as we know it!

      This is just a silly children’s poem straight from my imagination, and is fortunately based only on jokes about church, and not on my own experience!  

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.

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.

God's Tapestry

God’s Tapestry

Christian Poetry This Christian inspirational poem, written as a metaphor poem, looks at the analogy of  life being like one big tapestry with our lives all interwoven in some way. The Tapestry of Life was started At the dawn of time. Within the pattern, even then, God saved a place for mine.  With every stitch […]

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!

My Sister is a Bookworm

This poem begins very sensibly, but the rhyming led me in a totally different direction…..so I followed and the story developed from there!  Check out the amount of alliteration in verse 3!

humpty

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!      

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 […]

Escalating Ambition

  This shape poem is just a bit of fun, inspired by a true story of when I achieved a very odd ambition….
