Poetry For Kids

Sometimes children with their fresh eyes looking at the world may be able to see that which an adults eyes pass over. There are many sayings to express this sentiment. One is, "out of the mouths of babes", another coined by a television show is, "kids say the darndest things". We recognize that as adults we have become jaded. We may miss hilarious ironies about the world that our children have to point out to us. If I had to take a guess, I would say that children are in the world for just this purpose.

And she lives way down in a ditch.
Her clothing is a little strange,
Because she never wants to change.

You go to your back garden, as you want something to do,
And a world of wild adventure is staring back at you.
It's not a place that mum and dad know sits behind your home,
But you see things they can't see if you're prepared to comb.
