Funny Poems for Children

Your Five a Day - Heading .jpg

Your Five a Day

To help you lead a healthy life
     And stay both slim and fit,
Remember that those five a day
     Are things you can’t omit!

Cabbage, carrots, apples, pears -
     Are all good foods you'll find,
But one of Josie’s story poems 
     Will exercise your mind.

Bananas, peaches, plums and grapes,
     And one more thing to add:
One of Josie’s funny poems
     Will stop you feeling sad.

Strawberries, raspberries, peas and sprouts,
     And, if you have the time,
A weather poem might do the trick,
     Filled to the brink with rhyme.

Potatoes, onions, spinach, beans -
      These are the usual norm -
And Josie’s poems are just the thing
       For poems to perform.

Sweetcorn, peppers, beetroot, plums
     Won’t help you lose depression -
But a measured, metric Josie's poem
     Will make a good impression. 

Turnips, swede and salad veg;
      Berries of all kinds -
But one of Josie’s thinking poems
     Does wonders for the mind.  


One selling point for Josie’s Poems -
      And something that’s quite cheap:
When children hear these poems at night.
      They quickly fall asleep.
