CHRISTIAN POEMS

God’s Promises

This rhyming Christian inspirational poem is filled with God’s bible promises.     I looked at my day in the morning And said “Lord, I cannot get through it” “My child,” came the heavenly whisper “My promises will help you do it”

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.

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. However, I felt that it captured the gentility and the feelings that Springtime evokes, as well as having an unusual rhyme pattern, so I hope […]

A Prayer for Guidance

Christian Poetry Another of my Christian poems, this prayer is written in the style of a list poem, prayerfully asking God for help in making decisions.     What should I do?  Who should I be? What life has God prepared for me?

Thinking of You

Christian Poetry This inspirational  Christian encouragement poem is a lovely reminder that God is ever-present.   It’s easy to feel un-noticed, Not knowing there’s someone to care: To quietly blend in the background, Assuming that no-one’s aware.

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!

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.

The Foul Creature

    This immature story poem began as a serious thoughtful mystery, but the rhyming led me elsewhere!

A Poetic Nature Trail

A Poetic Nature Trail   This children’s poem is full of alliteration and word play, with some hyperbole (exaggeration for effect) and similes and metaphors.  The poem is deliberately written to be ‘performed’ by a teacher, as if on a nature trail, with the purpose of encouraging children that they could be undiscovered poets.

Bradley Mulladley Mulloon

  Bradley Mulladley Mulloon This is known as a nonsense poem for obvious reasons!  One of my favourite poets is Dr Seuss who wrote “The Cat in The Hat”, and I’ve tried to copy his style here by repeating one rhyming phoneme all the way through, spelt in the same way.  Dr Seuss often did […]
