Short Poems for Kids...

Sharing short poems for kids with your children is a wonderfully creative experience.

My own experience with poetry impacted me enough that I'd saved my portfolio of elementary school poems!

As I was starting this site, I made a trip to my parents' house to find all of my old folders ~ a fun trip down memory lane.

Here's a sample poem for children...

Summer vacation is wicked cool,
I'll sip some fruit punch,
And play in the pool,
Then I'll make some lunch,
Then it's back for another swim,
If I race I'm sure to win.

David Bohmiller, Sometime between 3rd and 6th grade


Some more kids poetry...

Does his best,
Always in control,
Very caring,
Is very athletic,
Drinks Coca~Cola.

Blessed in sports,
Oldest child in family,
Has almost finished elementary school,
Master at Karate,
Is self-confident,
Loveable,
Lucky,
Excellent,
Radical.

David Bohmiller, Somewhere between 3rd and 6th grade
