This morning I have been looking at loads of children's poems on the poetry archive and they are great. So much imagery. There were funny ones, poignant ones, peculiar ones and loads more in between. Snake hotels, iguanas, battles, even scissors!
Take a look for yourself. There's an adults site too if you fancy. Even if you've only got five minutes, see if you can be inspired to get creative from poets who are writing now...you can even listen to the poet read them to you!
Here's a few I particularly liked:
The Sssnake Hotel by Brian Moses
Walking with my Iguana by Brian Moses
Winter by Judith Nicholls
Please Mrs Butler by Allan Ahlberg
