Poems for Kids


'Twas midnight in the schoolroom
And every desk was shut
When suddenly from the alphabet
Was heard a loud "Tut-Tut!"

Said A to B, "I don't like C;
His manners are a lack.
For all I ever see of C
Is a semi-circular back!"

"I disagree," said D to B,
"I've never found C so.
From where I stand he seems to be
An uncompleted O."

C was vexed, "I'm much perplexed,
You criticise my shape.
I'm made like that, to help spell Cat
And Cow and Cool and Cape."

"He's right" said E; said F, "Whoopee!"
Said G, "'Ip, 'Ip, 'ooray!"
"You're dropping me," roared H to G.
"Don't do it please I pray."

"Out of my way," LL said to K.
"I'll make poor I look ILL."
To stop this stunt J stood in front,
And presto! ILL was JILL.

"U know," said V, "that W
Is twice the age of me.
For as a Roman V is five
I'm half as young as he."

X and Y yawned sleepily,
"Look at the time!" they said.
"Let's all get off to beddy byes."
They did, then "Z-z-z."


I always eat my peas with honey;
I've done it all my life.
They do taste kind of funny
but it keeps them on my knife


Poems for Kids

Little Johnny lived in the country
So dinner guests were few
When, one day, some did arrive
He knew just what to do

He brought in the first piece of pie
He was just little, and doing his best
He handed it to his Dad
Who passed it to a guest

Johnny came in again
And put another pie piece down
Dad picked it up
And passed it to Mrs Brown

Johnny got vexed,"I see what you're doing",
He said, with tears in his eyes
"But you're wasting your time, Dad
They're all the same size!"

You’re probably thinking that to make up this

Jon Bratton 2008


Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu.
when someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner,
and someone saw my grin.
when he smiled I realized.
I’d passed it on to him!
