Check out TabStart's curated collection of children's poetry from a variety of authors, including Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Makepeace Thackeray, and Christina Rossetti. And, of course, the work of both Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss is represented here. The short poems below offer children a simple yet thorough introduction to poetry's word play and vivid imagery. Also, the selections below demonstrate poetry's ability to express ethereal sensations in a way that prose cannot. Hopefully, the verse here will encourage children to develop a passion for the endless possibilities of the written word.
