10 Easy Poems For Kids

Here is a list of 10 wonderful and easy poems for kids.

  1. The Stars Are Blinking
  2. By Annette Wynne

    The stars are blinking in the skies;

    They see some sights that hurt their eyes;

    And sometimes they are very sad—

    O let’s be good and make them glad!

  3. Happy Thoughts
  4. By Robert Louis Stevenson

    The world is so full

    of a number of things,

    I’m sure we should all

    be as happy as kings.

  5. The Crocodile
  6. By Lewis Carroll

    How doth the little crocodile

    Improve his shining tail,

    And pour the waters of the Nile

    On every golden scale!

    How cheerfully he seems to grin,

    How neatly spreads his claws,

    And welcomes little fishes in,

    With gently smiling jaws!

  7. The Days of the Month
  8. By Unknown

    Thirty days hath September,

    April, June, and November;

    February has twenty-eight alone.

    All the rest have thirty-one,

    Excepting leap-year—that’s the time

    When February’s days are twenty-nine.

  9. Try Again
  10. By William E. Hickson

    ‘T is a lesson you should heed,

    Try, try again;

    If at first you don’t succeed,

    Try, try again;

    Then your courage should appear,

    For, if you will persevere,

    You will conquer, never fear;

    Try, try again.

    Once or twice though you should fail,

    Try, try again;

    If you would at last prevail,

    Try, try again;

    If we strive, ’tis no disgrace

    Though we do not win the race;

    What should you do in the case?

    Try, try again.

  11. There Once Was A Man With A Beard
  12. By Edward Lear

    There was an Old Man with a beard,

    Who said “It is just how I feared,”

    Two Owls and a hen,

    For Larks and a wren,

    Have all built their nests in my beard.

  13. The Purple Cow
  14. By Gelett Burgess

    I never saw a purple cow,

    I never hope to see one,

    But I can tell you, anyhow,

    I’d rather see than be one!

  15. Firefly
  16. By Elizabeth Madox Roberts

    A little light is going by,

    Is going up to see the sky,

    A little light with wings.

    I never could have thought of it,

    To have a little bug all lit

    And made to go on wings.

  17. I’m a Little Teapot
  18. By George Harold Sanders

    I’m a little teapot

    Short and stout

    Here is my handle 

    Here is my spout 

    When I get all steamed up

    Hear me shout

    “Tip me over

    and pour me out!” 

    I’m a clever teapot,

    Yes, it’s true

    Here let me show you

    What I can do

    I can change my handle

    And my spout

    Just tip me over and pour me out! 

  19. Star Light, Star Bright
  20. By Unknown

    Star light, start bright,

    The first star I see tonight;

    I wish I may, I wish I might,

    Have the wish I wish tonight.
