I just had to share with you a website my eldest recently stumbled upon, Kenn Nesbitt’s Poetry for Kids, http://www.poetry4kids.com/poems.

It has some really great poems on it that my two really love, this is their, or should I say my eldest current favourite;

Xbox, Xbox

Xbox, Xbox,
you’re the one for me.
I also love my 3DS
and my Nintendo Wii.

GameCube, GameBoy,
Apple iPod Touch.
I never thought that I would ever
be in love this much.

Pac-Man, Sonic,
Mario, and Link.
Your names are etched inside my mind
in everlasting ink.

Run, jump, flip, hang,
double-jump, and climb.
That’s all I want to do
with every second of my time.

This is true love.
Yes, it’s plain to see.
Xbox, Xbox,
will you marry me?

–Kenn Nesbitt

It’s great when a website like this gets kids excited about writing and poetry. I was thrilled to see my eldest later opening a Powerpoint document labeling it “My Whizzpopping Poems” and attempting to write his own poem.

It may not last, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is that it’s made poetry seem possible, isn’t that great.
