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

    I'm Michaela George, and I am 12 years old. I enjoy writing songs, stories, and poems. This particular poem is one I am using in an assignment for school. It's about seasons and how everything changes so rapidly.

    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.

    • By Tony Zhou
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2020

    I wrote this poem about my hair during quarantine. I didn't leave the house for weeks, and my hair was looking like a jungle!

    There's a jungle on my head.
    My hair's gone absolutely wild.
    It looks like the Amazon rainforest.
    I really don't like this style.

  7. 5. Dreams

    • By Darah S
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2017

    It was a necessity that I wrote this after an idea. I wanted dreams to be expressed at their full possibility, and I still don't do them justice. I have to admit, I'm proud. I'm younger, so this is really exciting for me. Writing is my life.

    Images of hope,
    Locked up fear you share,
    Love and desire,
    All in your head somewhere.

    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...

  8. 6. What Love Is

    • By Alyshia R. Thomas
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    I am 12 and wrote this for my mother. She is my life.

    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!

  10. 8. What If?

    This poem is about imagining if things in this world were not the way they are now.

    What if there were purple spots on a pig?
    What if there were no burrows to dig?

    What if the colours weren't invented?

  11. 9. Yellow Senses

    • By Favor M. Abioye
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2016

    Yellow is my bestie's favorite color. I don't know why she likes yellow. I like purple, and yellow and purple are opposites.

    Yellow is beautiful
    And kind.
    Yellow tastes sour down my throat.
    It feels like the warmth of the sky.

  12. 10. The Joy Of Christmas

    My poem is about the special feeling of Christmas and what it means to me. This is my first poem ever written on paper.

    Christmas is a loving hug
    Or roasting chestnuts on the rug.
    Christmas is one's first snow
    And wrapping presents up with bows.

  13. 11. Battle Cry

    • By Ethan Patterson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2018

    My name is Ethan, and I'm 14. I wrote this poem to commemorate my uncle when he told me a story of his best friend passing away in his arms.

    Running through the battlefield, bracing for the bang.
    Cannons fire near me, metal swords go clang.

    Everyone I know and love could flash before my eyes.

  15. 13. A Guilty Angel

    • By Jim-Jam-F
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2012

    I know that a sister is for life and that you should love them know matter what, and I do, but sometimes they can really get on your nerves. Especially if they are younger than you. I am saying what I think about my little sisters and what they are to me.

    My little sister really winds me up.
    She made me smash my mum's best cup.
    And every time she kicks my chair,
    I really wish she wasn't there.

  17. 15. Winter Love/Hate

    • By Cheyenne Marie Gillett
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2014

    Poem about how I hate the cold but I love parts of winter. I'm only 13 and I wrote this. I try to write good poems. My teacher, my mom, and other people told me to enter this.

    To be honest, I hate the cold; I freeze easily,
    But I love how the snow tickles my nose.
    I love how the trees are naked
    And the sky dresses them in white like a dress.

  19. 17. On A Rainy Day

    I usually hate when the months of rain come because the rain always reminds me of doom and gloom...but when I'm happy, I feel like thinking of everything happy, and so I composed a poem when I was happy and now I love rain as much as any other season!

    A freezing cold breeze,
    Just swept my face.
    Excited I went,
    To seize my "RAIN CASE"
