Since 1998 The Poetry Zone has published around 20,000 poems by young people and has 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!

It’s nearly Christmas. Be sure to enter our Christmas poem competition. You can check out winning poems from previous competitions by clicking on “poems” and then scrolling down to “Competition Entries.”

NOTE TO SCHOOLS SENDING POEMS. I’m very happy for schools to send us poems. But I do edit all poems – in the same way that poems would be edited in a book. This does take time – and so I would ask schools to limit the number of poems sent. If a school sends, say, 30 poems – one from every class member – I may have to choose a selection to appear in the Poetry Zone. Schools may, however, send as many poems as they would like for competitions..

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.

 

 

Competition!

Christmas

by Harshita Das aged 11

Out from the window
I look up to see
A snow-covered lawn
And presents for me

A big Christmas tree
With lights dangling down
A silver star on top
And absolutely no frowns

Christmas

Christmas

by Hannah aged 10

Christmas is close
14 days till it comes
and it’s freezing
But here in Florida
it is 40 degrees
but, I’m still
happy!

Christmas

by Hannah aged 10

Christmas is a time to share
with loving and care
We also have presents
under the tree and when
we get the
we are as holly as can be
I love Christmas!
