  1. 21. Support Imagination

    • By Sharon J Spivak
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2019

    The ABC Poem format is a format I have barely used through all the years of writing poetry. However, I was intrigued once I jumped in to try it! My husband of 42 years and I are recently retired and currently living in NC, having moved 3 years ago from New England. Retirement has blessed me with time to finally pursue my love of art and writing. I'm thrilled with this site where I am able to be a part of a community of poets! I'm just getting started, but I look forward to reading others' poems.

    A ball dress, some slippers, and I am in heaven.
    Believe me, pretending and dress up is fun!
    Can you use your own imagination?
    Do give it a try, my little one.

  2. 22. Morning Fog

    When I was a kid and it was foggy, it always reminded me of an endless sea, and I fantasized about going on all kinds of adventures...

    The morning fog
    - White and dense -
    Comes creeping in
    Through the garden fence.

  3. 23. Wise Words

    A book is not a window
    nor is it a magical key
    a book’s not a path
    through a mountain

    The child knows best... A book's a story waiting to be read Taking one to where their feet never tread Be it fact or fiction whatever's told It's a mystery about to unfold.

  4. 24. Five Little Stars

    My poem is a classic nursery rhyme that teaches kids to count down from five.

    Five little stars were twinkling,
    Bright like never before.
    One little star burned up -
    Now there were only four.

  5. 25. If I Were A Hero

    This poem depicts the desire of a child to be a hero. He wishes to do something good for the world like his favorite fictional heroes (here, Avengers). To him, his happiness would be in its zenith if he could be like them. The poem is strictly penned in ABC form. Please read it aloud, keeping the flow and rhythm in order to enjoy more. Hope you will like the poem and the mode in which it is crafted.

    Above huge hills if ever I could rise,
    Beyond the gravity as Iron Man flies.
    Climbing and hanging if towers I could touch,
    Dashing as the Spider-Man, if fingers were such.

  6. 26. A Day On The Farm, 1890

    Working a farm is one of the most demanding jobs there is. Imagine what it was like 130 years ago! This is the story of one farmhand's taxing day. Exaggerated? Maybe, but it may not be too far from reality at that time.

    "Cock-a-doodle-doo!" I heard.
    I really hate that lousy bird!
    I got home late from Betty Lou's,
    But now I've got my chores to do.

  7. 27. I'd Love To Be A Fairy's Child

    Robert Graves was an English poet who lived from 1895-1985. He became known as a war poet, and he published three books of poetry while on active duty during World War I. This poem was published the same year the war ended, and it can be felt that Robert Graves was writing about his desire for children to face an easier life, one that’s not filled with so much pain, suffering, and unmet needs.

    Children born of fairy stock
    Never need for shirt or frock,
    Never want for food or fire,
    Always get their heart's desire:

    Very nice poem. It deals with the aspirations of children. Childhood is the stage of innocence, and the present poem describes the same. It's lyrical, rhythmic and rhymed.

  8. 28. Mrs. Blossom

    • By Christopher J. Radford
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2017

    A group of children, aged about 6 to 9, see an old lady, who lives alone, as a witch, although she is anything but!

    Mrs. Blossom was a witch,
    we're pretty sure of that,
    though she didn't have a broomstick,
    wear a cloak, or pointed hat.

  9. 29. Life In Fairy Land

    Writing for the Summer Poetry Competition brought out the child within me with a sweet tooth, who has been screaming to come out. As a little girl, I did dream of running away to consume chocolate 24-hours a day. What I really wanted then was to have dessert as the first course for my meal, not after I already filled up from savouries. Today I finally managed to indulge in my dream on paper. Having my favourite fairy tale characters joining my sugary feast is just an added bonus.

    As a small child I fancied to sail
    By ocean to a land of fairy tales,
    Camp in a field with Little Red Riding Hood.
    Dazzling stars would fire at the Big Bad Wolf.

  10. 30. Night

    A bedtime poem to ease small children's fear of the night and to reassure them that the moon and the stars are watching over them.

    Silver moon and golden stars
    Are watching over us from afar.

  11. 31. No Monsters Allowed

    Poem of a child who is afraid of monsters. We have been there. Don't look under the bed.

    I told my mom there is a monster under my bed,
    and she tells me it's all in my head.
    What about the one coming through my wall?
    Or the one I hear stomping down the hall?

  13. 33. I Wish

    I wish that spinach tasted like chocolate,
    Instead of tasting sour and bitter.
    I wish that candy bars were loaded with nutrition,
    So that eating as many as I like would make me even fitter.

  14. 34. Did You Know?

    I wanted to try writing an ABC poem for kids. I love to write and like to try my hand at writing all different forms of poetry.

    A cardinal flew past me today
    Because he wanted my attention.
    Cardinals mean someone in heaven is thinking of you.
    Did you know that? And did you also know that

  17. 37. Something's In The Closet

    • By Ciaran J. Short
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2019

    My name is Ciaran Short. I am 21 years old and a rising senior in college in Oregon, currently majoring in English. I was born and raised in New York City on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Growing up, I shared a bedroom with my older brother. Our bedroom window opened to a dimly lit alleyway, which produced a constant stream of mysterious sounds. As children, my older brother would often exploit the noise at night to scare me. The poem below details one of those nights.

    My closet is booming, something's not right.
    The moon is looming, shining real bright.
    Shadows dance across the bedroom floor,
    Slowly creeping towards my closet door.

  18. 38. Little Boy

    A child's imagination is limitless; it will take you anywhere. Maybe a child's imagination becomes the key to success as an adult. "Little Boy" is dedicated to my son, Ryan.

    Little boy, with your eyes so blue,
    You see the world so shiny and new.
    He hugs his mommy, leaves his daddy's knee.
    Time to explore; so much to see.

  19. 39. Summer Fun

    I am a mother and grandmother. I enjoy outdoor activities when all of the grandchildren come over to visit.

    The children on the block
    Are playing with chalk.
    Bubbles are flying around,
    Popping when they hit the ground.

  20. 40. A Riddle

    Children enjoy the playful nature of words. They like to figure out riddles and laugh at jokes. Are you able to use the clues in this poem to figure out the riddle?

    There is one that has a head without an eye,
    And there's one that has an eye without a head.
    You may find the answer if you try;
    And when all is said,
