You women
Know how to make 
The best of what you've got in you
You do it everyday in your life

Hoopdie Diddle Didy De

Hoopdie diddle didy de. 
Grab your fiddle and follow me.
Play a diddy for the crowd.
Play it pretty and play it loud.

Tying my shoe

What do I do What do I do
What do I do to tie my shoe
Cross it over pull it tight
Loop it together well, I think that's right

There goes my baby
Strolling the long way home
Light of my life song

Shedding Sunday now
Kicking remnants down the slope
Waiting for Monday

Short Kindergarten poem by Cindy Lu| Details |

A Tree

A tree grows from the ground up
Grows tall with a little luck

It leans on the sunshine,
and soaks up the rain

It sheds its clothes,
then dresses for the Spring!

Another Love-2

Another Love

You hold me in thrall
Charm me with your demeanor
And draw me to you
Like a kindergarten kid 
Is, by a wayside puddle.

Kindergarten News

Telegraph said -
See every single outfit
Of the Duchess of Cambridge.
Am I alone in thinking
This does not pass for news?

Every single... no, we mustn't miss it.
Every single outfit we must see.

Short Kindergarten poem by karen croft| Details |

first kiss

there is nothing like the taste of a first kiss
the sweet smell of bubble gum while still in the mouth
while hiding behind a trash dumpster in kindergarten at recess
kissing the boy of your dreams at age five

Fruits Colours

An apple is Red,
I like eating bread,
Banana is yellow,
I am jolly fellow,
Pear is green,
I am neat and clean,
Coconut is brown,
I am little clown,
All fruits are nice,
They make us healthy and wise!!

Rain is here, water everywhere,
Rainbow is seen up in the sky, 
I wish i could fly so high.
Eat hot things to keep tummy fill,
Do not get wet else you fall ill 
Make paper boat, in the rain it float,
Have fun in the rain,ignore all pain!!

Short Kindergarten poem by romeo naces| Details |

marble marvel

Back when I was four or five,
unspeakable was my joy:
admiring rainbowed prisms
in my marble, my treasured toy.

Only in the grownups' world
was a crumpled dollar bill
more treasured than my marble
there glistening on the window sill.

Your Shadow

Your Shadow...
Is dark in colour
Like black but duller
Comes and goes
Shrinks and grows

When around
It makes no sound
And whatever you do
It follows too

So when it’s near
Have no fear
It’s always there
Cause you’re a pair

Ketchup Up

Driving over a bridge

Is a scary affair

Suspended we drive
Way up in the air!

If water is liquid

How does it hold us up?

My soup can't even hold 

Just a little ketchup up!

The physics of it all 

Baffles me

But then again

 I'm only three!

Mother's Day Hero

series haiku

crooked paper heart
fold is on the wrong side
the right side

gripping the crayon
YOU ARE THE BEST, he labors
tongue between his teeth
can't wait till Sunday
opening his backpack -
his heart is broken

Mom to the rescue
his hero saves the day
Elmer's glue and hugs

Short Kindergarten poem by brandy wassam| Details |

the bear

there once was a bear
who lived in belair 
he owned a red hen
who made eggs for his kin
then one time like most bears do
the bear got hungery 
and ate the red hen 
and her last eggs of ten
with a gulp and a swallow 
down went the hen 
but wait..
now there was no hen to lay eggs for his kin.

Noisy Workmen.

Will these noises never stop?
Noise will cease in just a tick.

Thump, thump,thump, thud,thud,thud.
There it's fixed, should last for good.
Please take care tell girls and boys
or we'll be back to make more noise.

Short Kindergarten poem by Duke Beaufort| Details |

life with Trump X

Who tweets toxic thoughts like a pump
And has shown that we are his sump?
The zone he has sewn
This chump dump he must own
Ain't Earth—it’s his clone—planet "Trump!"

Author's Note: What are they teaching at the planetarium (otherwise known as the kindergarten)?  Mercury, Venus, Trump, Mars, Jupiter....

Short Kindergarten poem by Nigel Fox| Details |

Lock Down

The bogey man is here
Uncle Gunnysack
No longer hiding in English peat bogs
The Bag Man who carries a bag and kidnaps those who don't behave

Do you hear him knocking
Why don’t you want to go to bed
He will take you away if you wont obey your parents
He will pull you up into tiny holes in the ceiling

A siren will sound when all is safe

7 Ways to fight the Flu

1. Get your flu shot every year
• Flu is serious
• The flu shot is your best protection
• This year’s shot targets this year’s viruses
2. Wash your hands
3. Stop smoking
4. Avoid touching your face
5. Eat your fruits and veggies
6. Sneeze and cough into the bend of your arm
7. Stay home if you’re sick

Mystery Solved

 I saw a little button,
 It was lying on the floor,
 I wondered who had lost it
 And looked around for more.
 It hadn’t come from Donna
 Or from Stuart’s nice new shirt,
 And it wasn’t Kelly’s button
 That was lying in the dirt.
 I couldn’t find who lost it
 I had a worried frown.
 But now I know the answer,
 My trousers just fell down.

Short Kindergarten poem by James Howard| Details |


     Never follow, never lead
Feels like suffocation
Until I breathe
Some things as sweet, as a bitter pill
Regrets are common,
Or against your will
Does the heart cry 
As the soul does rejoice
Are we involuntarily beings
Without a choice
Can we ever find comfort in failure
Or sorrow in success 
Maybe go to the mountains
Write poetry to relieve stress...

Short Kindergarten poem by Bambi Graf-Burnham| Details |

A view of man

A man impatient on the corner
Waiting for the light to say walk
As cars drive by splashing mud
Oblivious to anything going on
A truck pulls too far into the intersection
And a car has to screech to a halt
The driver swearing out of his window
Then continues on his way
Rain sprinkles gently down on all the world 
Softly saying GOD BLESS YOU
But no one listens....

Short Kindergarten poem by Sidney Beck| Details |



I love their cute,  fresh, open minds
But teaching  comes in different kinds
One day  I succeed in  planned  teacher-telling
The way to do things properly 
Next day  I  fail like a drunk in charge of a watermelon
Kids are like balls of mercury
Their containment is in serious  doubt
Exhaust me like a lemon at maximum squeeze-out.

Kids Like Funny Presents

Hey Mummy, hey daddy
Guess what I got today.
A headful of headaches
Are coming your way

My best friend at kindy
She gave me a gift
Lots of them, actually
They move and they shift

They are really athletic
They jump really high
They come and they stay
No need to say bye

They make me dance
My best friend is so nice
I couldn't wait to tell you
That she gave me lice!
