    I could catch a poem right now.

  • My Imaginary Friend

    • Published: March 23, 2022

    in Funny Poems for Kids

    I have lots of friends, but there is a special one,
    With whom I play the most – we have so much fun.
    He never argues, and I’ve never heard him whine;
    He always thinks that my suggestions are perfectly fine.

    in Nature Poems for Kids

    Have you ever seen the exact moment when Night
    Descends from above, and spreads darkness everywhere?
    Night comes so quietly, and chases Day away so thoroughly,
    That it doesn’t leave even a speck of light behind in the air!

  • I Wish

    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.

  • When I Meet A Fairy

    in Poems for Kids

    Though I have never, ever met a fairy,
    I am quite certain that they exist.
    I read about them every day in stories and poems,
    So I know they’re living somewhere in our midst.
