Christmas Poems for Kids

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?
