Children's Poems

Welcome to the kid’s poetry section of my website. I hope these children’s poems will instill a love for language, rhythm, and rhyme that encourages young people to think more deeply, imagine more fully, smile with new delight, or laugh right out loud. Children’s poems can also be pleasing to parents, educators, speakers, artists…anyone who is young at heart. May you have as much fun reading as I did writing them!
FINDING THE POEM YOU WANT:  As you scroll through this section, simply read each snippet sample (usually the first four lines) to get a feel for the poem. When you find something you like, click “CONTINUE READING” to view the entire poem.

If I can get bigger and taller and tougher
and leaner and meaner and stronger and rougher,
then I can play basketball better and better,
and they’ll call me shooter and hoopster and netter!
