Welcome to The Poetry Zone!
It’s nearly Christmas, in case you hadn’t noticed. And we have a brand new Christmas competition. Unlike our regular competitions we’ll be posting Christmas Poems as they come in. You will see the competition entries by clicking on “poems” and scrolling down.
You can also check out previous winning poems by clicking on “Poems” and then scrolling down to “Competition Entries”. There you’ll find the winners of – Summer Competition, Love My Family, Christmas Poems, Scary Poems and Lost and Found.
Poo Poo Poo! Rude poems can be very funny but be warned – if you send us poems about farts, bottoms or poo they won’t be appearing in the Poetry Zone. So please stop sending us rude poems.
And do please remember that all the poems you send should be your own original work.
Since 1998 The Poetry Zone has published around 20,000 poems by young people and had millions of visitors – children and teenagers, real live poets and other adults who want to check us out, especially teachers who use the Poetry Zone as a fun way of teaching poetry in their schools. Do spread the word!
Christmas Foreverby aged
Christmas is a time for wonder
A time for thought, love and joy
It gives us hope for another year
We cling on to happiness with the thought of presents
Apologies are extinct at Christmas
A Blue Christmasby aged
No presents under the tree, not one
Not a card, nothing
Not a “Merry Christmas” for me
I am a refugee
A crisp voice wakes me up at dawn
Does that voice even know it’s Christmas?
