Celebrate life’s events with poems!

Poetry helps us celebrate the many life’s events that come our way throughout the years.

  • Poems allow us to express joy, appreciation, love, excitement, and celebration of new arrivals, birthdays, graduations, religious events, weddings, anniversaries, and holidays such as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
  • On the other hand, poems provide an outlet for emotions such as sadness and loss, disappointment and anger, confusion and confession…
  • Poems can bring fun to activities for children while developing an array of skills.
