Funny Poems for Children

Your Five a Day - Heading .jpg


By Josie Whitehead

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.
