Younger Children People Poems



By Josie Whitehead

I have a friend whose name is Billy

And we all think he’s rather silly.

     He doesn’t work and acts the fool

     And really wastes his time at school.


Another friend, whose name is Lynn,

Is very small and rather thin.

    She wears blue jeans and a pink tee-shirt.

    I’ve never seen her wear a skirt.


Some twins, who can’t be told apart,

Are both extremely good at art.

    Then Daniel, Jenny, Pat and Trevor –

    All of them are very clever.


I love to see my friends each day

And even after school we play.

    Our birthday parties are such fun,

    But we’re tired out when day is done.
