Poetry Created by Children

Most kids learn to read and write by reading books, but many kids learn to love reading and writing by reading poetry books. Often, when children develop an interest in reading poetry, they begin to try their hand at the craft. Children have a special way of amusing and inspiring adults with their innocence on a daily basis. For this reason, no one should underestimate a child's ability to turn their everyday lives, their perceptions of the world around them, and their deepest emotions into poems that can be humorous, enlightening, intelligent, touching, devastating, or just plain adorable.

  3. 2. Seasons

    • By Michaela
    • Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008 with permission of the Author.

    Winter is cold, with gusts of tumbling snow,
    When rain falls down and nothing ever grows.
    For children, it's the snow that they desire
    And cups of cocoa in front of the fire.

    Beautiful poetry, dreams take one to places unseen, to where broken hearts are redeemed. What would we do without dreams, they're the movies that creep into our heads as we are fast asleep...

  9. 7. What Love Is

    • By Alyshia R. Thomas
    • Published by Family Friend Poems August 2006 with permission of the Author.

    True treasure is not found on ships, in chests of silver and gold.
    True treasure is not ruby rings or jewels from long ago.
    You don't need a treasure map to find chests beneath the sea.
    True treasure is simply the love and joy found in you and me!
