Time flies awayAnd doesn't fly backTime runs outAnd doesn't bother to packTime waits for no oneIt just goes out of sightTime is preciousBut time has no priceSo spend your time wisely'cause you don't really knowWhen you'll ask yourself"Where did the time go?"****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****

People can be proudPeople can be brashPeople can be unforgivingPeople can clashBut we're all going throughThe same basic livesThings make us laughThings make us cryI don't understand Why people can't forgiveMistakes are made in lifeSo live and help liveIf you are wrongedMake them feel rightIf they put you in darknessJust help them see lightPeople are peopleAnd we all can be wrongBut that doesn't meanWe can't all get along****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****
Canoe trip
2007-07-22 16:13:00
Water flowsAnd takes us on its armsWe look at its beautyWe laugh at its charmsThe river is quietYet extremely politeWe paddle all dayTo its utter delightBut the joy is all oursAs we spend a whole dayLetting the riverTake us its wayFrom here it keeps goingAlthough our trip is throughIt just keeps on flowingAs we dock our canoeWe stand in thanksFor our day in the sunFor the time we spentWith the river as one****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****

Attention
2007-07-17 20:58:00
Excuse me, Owners? Please listen upI know I?m just a dog. Just a hound. Just a pup.But for two days, you left me here all aloneRan as fast as you could right out of our home.Didn?t you worry about giving me kibble?(The neighbors came over just to give me a nibble.)No one walked me around the block.I didn?t play with a ball or a rolled up sock.And even now, it?s like I don?t exist.Was I long forgotten, and then not even missed?And what?s that there that you?ve got in the blanket?Is it a big roast beef from a three-day-long banquet?No? What is it? C?mon, let me see.What?s causing no one to pay attention to me?Oh no! It can?t be! It?s another one of those!With ten little fingers and ten tiny toes.I could have been starving. I could?ve gotten rabies.You were out getting another one of those silly babies.****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****

'sponsible
2007-07-17 02:54:00
My room is dirty.And I don?t care.My teeth aren?t brushed.Neither is my hair.My room is in shamblesMy chores aren?t done.I?d rather watch TVOr go have some funWho really cares,?cept little old me?If I just hang aroundAnd do what I please?Someone else will do it?Cause they always doIn fact my whole lifecould be completely up to youI?ll just sit and watchAnd play with joyAs you scurry aroundTo clean up my toys.Well, it?s thirty years laterAnd I?m sad to reportThat my plans didn?t workIn fact they fell well shortWell they worked for a timeYeah, it was fun for awhileUntil you got tiredOf cleaning my pilesSo here I sit,As still as a stoneNever learned to do a thingAnd now I?m alone.But I?ve learned one thingAnd I learned it real good.If you don?t take care of yourselfThen no one else should.****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****
The tree
2007-07-13 15:11:00
A tree spreads outAs it gets biggerReaching to heavenWith incredible vigorPeople, howeverTend to get disjointedAs we get hurtAnd disappointedWe close upAnd our dreams disappearWhen our hopes are lostAnd we're left with just fearWe could learn from that treeA thing or two or twentyAbout how life is goodAnd how God gives us plentyDon't let the badUndo all the greatSee all that's possibleAnd let love conquer hateSo stand in the sunshineLaugh in the rainAnd realize that joyIs greater than painStretch like the treeAnd don't have a careBecause heaven, my childIs both here and there****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****

If the world keeps spinningwhile we?re all so busyDoes that explainwhy we?re getting so dizzy?If the world keeps turningas we rush here and theredoes that explainwhy we?re going nowhere?If the world turns too fastwe?ll be throw into flight.So you?d better grab onto someoneand just hold on real tight.****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****
Between the lightning and the thunder
2007-07-09 14:32:00
Between the lightning and the thunder.Is where we all exist.Some cover their eyes and ears.Trying to resist.Others revel in the time between.Dancing, hugging,and following their dreams.Between the lightning and the thunder.Is the place where we?re all living.So marvel the lightning. Embrace the thunder.And treasure the time you?re given.****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****

Smarter
2007-07-07 16:50:00
My friend told me to use words that were longer.She said they?d make me sound smarter and stronger.But I found it all to be ostentatious(See what I mean, ain?t that word outrageous?)But I think there?s only one word I needIt?s one little syllable that helps me succeed.It makes people stop, it makes people smileIt makes them sit down and talk for awhileThere?s only one word that I need to live byAnd that teeny little wordis just simply?Hi.?****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****
Lost and found
2007-07-06 15:32:00
Wandering in the woodsOn a Saturday morningWe went off the trailAnd got lost without warningWe tried to find the sunBut there were just cloudsWe tried to hear voicesBut there were no crowdsWe climbed through rootsAnd through harsh terrainWe got cut by some thornsAnd it started to rainAfter hours upon hoursWe thought we were no whereWe had to learn how to copeAnd help and shareEventually we found the pathBut we were much strongerWe got to our placeIt just took a bit longerWe're glad we got lost(Although we were frightened)Because now we're found(And much more enlightened)So if you find yourself lostDon't stop and fearJust keep moving forwardAnd the path will appear****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****

I?m always stuck in the middleI never finish my listsAnd I don?t have as much funas an asterisk.I try to hold it all togetherI?m constantly connectingAnd I interrupt thoughtsWhenever I?m reflectingI don?t start at the beginningI don?t end at the endAnd I look like a quote markWho just lost a friendI?m sorry about the fussI don?t mean to cause a drama(I?ve got it better than the colon)Guess I?m happy to be a comma.****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****

My dog knows a lot of stuff.I asked him about sandpaper, and he said “ROUGH”But I think I found undeniable proof.When I pointed to my house, and he yelled “ROOF”Then I thought I was going deafWhen we watched football, and he said “REF”After that came the moment of truthWhen I asked the capital of Minnesota and he said “DULUTH”I know, I know. It’s St. Paul.Stupid dog.****Brought to you by www.poemadayforkids.blogspot.com*****

Absurd bird
2007-06-21 00:26:00
Yesterday I saw a birdAnd he seemed a bit absurdHe said “hello”I said "huh? whoa”'Cause I couldn’t believe what I heard.He went on, “Good day, my friend”I couldn’t believe I heard it again.I found it abnormalThat he was so formalBut I decided an ear I would lendAnd then he politely asked for some foodI said “I’ll check”, ‘cause I hate to be rude.I thought long and hard.I looked ‘round the yard“Sorry, no” is what I had to conclude.“Well there’s a fishing store five blocks away”The bird said in a much less courteous way“They sell worms by the bunchWhich would be great for lunch.”So I begrudgingly said, “OK”Then I walked to the store, a good mile from there.“Just ask for a can”, that bird did declare.I walked into the storeIt was a dollar and four.“I’ll pay you back” he said, “I swear”When I opened the can, I thought the bird was quite cleverAnd started to think this was a daily endeavorWhen the store clerk screamed“Bird , you s...

The monkey store

A group of monkeysopened a store.And it was openfrom 10 to 4.They sold bananasto all of their friendsat a good, fair price,(so as not to offend.)Business was good,but upon further inspectionit was better if they wentin a different direction.They found other animalsthat they could target.so they added itemsand expanded the market.Word got out,and the animals started buyingThe parrots, the hippos.Yes, even the lions.But when the monkeys earned enoughto keep happy and alivea second group opened a storefrom 9 to 5.The first store lost business,so this problem they fixedby expanding their hoursfrom 8 to 6.Success came backto their small operationso they decided to openseveral new locationsWhen the second monkeyscaught wind of all thisthey decided to tryan aggressive new twist.They opened huge stores,as big as the forestwhere they sold food, clothes -there was even a florist.They mowed down treesto make their new spacesit put money in their pocketsand smiles on their faces.But the first m...
