Poems by Kids

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.

    Short Poem Of Love From Young Daughter To Mother

    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!

    My little sister really winds me up.

    We argue about the stupidest things
    I tell you my story and you tell me yours
    we don't like the same things
