Haiku for kids

Haiku is a short poem with three lines of  5, 7 and 5 syllables. The first Haiku poem  appeared in Japan 700 years ago. You can write Haiku poetry in Japanese, English and other Western languages.  Haiku are very short poems (three lines) and therefor it is important to create an images in a very few words.  You often use a dash or an ellipsis to indicate the break or cut between lines.

Acrostic Poems For Mother’s Day

How to write an Acrostic Poem for Children.

It is not to difficult for kids to write an acrostic poem. Here is one example I wrote for my mother for Mother’s Day. Here in the United Kingdom is  Mother’s Day on March 14, so I wrote a little poem I want to share. It is an acrostic poem for anyone you really like. Happy Mother’s Day,

Milou -:)

Acrostic Poems for Kids

How do I start to write an acrostic poem? Acrostic poems are  unique poems that do not necessarily have to rhyme. It has the topic written vertically, and, at each letter, something to do with the topic written horizontally. I used the word LOVE in my Mother’s Day poem. You can use any word or phrase you like. Pick a strong title like “Love” or “Mother”  and find some other examples for acrostic poems on the Internet to get a feeling for it. Write the word of your title vertically on the page. You will want to have one letter for each line. Your lines will begin with the corresponding letter of that particular line.

If you are using “LOVE” as your title,  as I did, you will write a sentence  that starts with the “L“. The next sentence will start with an O but has to relate to the first sentence. Continue doing this until the end of the title.

L-O-V-E Acrostic Mother’s Day Poems

Loneliness is out of the question
luck and good fortune are here to stay.

Only listen to your heart, it will
tell you which one’s the right way.

Vague and misty cover the path, but
you’ll always find your way out.

Excitement and energy spread through
your body, LOVE is a wonder, without a doubt

Funny Christmas Poems for Kids

Funny Christmas Poems for Kids

Today I post another Christmas poem or winter poem for Children called Christmas Ice. I wrote some funny Christmas poems for children and Xmas poems for kids. Merry Christmas and white Christmas is what I am looking for when i go back to Sweden for my Christmas holidays next week. We will have a “real” Christmas tree this time I hate plastic trees but what can you do – it is summer here. It is very difficult to get a real “Christmas feeling” if you are from Scandinavia, I can tell. :-)

Christmas Poems for Kids

Today I will post some Christmas poems for kids. The first one is an acrostic Christmas poem or it is more a winter poem. But I am on my way back to Sweden for “real” Christmas and winter time;  so perhaps I am a bit inspired of the coming winter season and Christmas holidays in Europe.  :-)

How to write Acrostic Poems?

Acrostic poems are very easy to write. Just pick a name or word like WINTER and write a word or phrase for each letter – and you have your first acrostic poem.

Here is another example by one of our great poets and master Lewis Carroll.

A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky

Lewis Carroll (from Through the Looking Glass, 1871) is an acrostic poem of the real Alice’s name: Alice Pleasance Lidell inspired the children’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

A boat, beneath a sunny sky
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July -

Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear -

Long has paled that sunny sky:
Echoes fade and memories die:
Autumn frosts have slain July.

Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes.

Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream -
Lingering in the golden gleam -
Life, what is it but a dream?
