Poetry for Children

Cloud in a Jam Jar

Cloud in a jam jar
needs the sky.
The boy who trapped him
sees it cry.
He opens the jam jar,
‘Fly cloud fly.’

About the Writer

Christine R Milne

Christine is a poet who loves writing haiku. Some of them have been published in journals and anthologies. Luckily other poems pop into her head. Most of them are for children which is not surprising as she enjoys being a teacher and a mother. Also, creating poems that connect with a child’s view of the world is really special. This is helped by her favourite hobby, trying not to eat too much chocolate.
