Poetry for Children

Imagination Poem

I is for Interesting things; Irregular and Irreverent

M is for as many Multitudinous Mind-blowing Musings as you can Muster

A is for Actually, Anything goes

G is for Good Golly ... I am Gobsmacked

I is for Ideas: Irresistible and Irrepressible

N is for Nobody would ever guess

A is for Another idea then Another then Another

T is for Tantalising Tickling Thoughts: Terrific and Tremendous

I is for Instant Incomparable happiness

O is for Oh! who could have ever thought that

N is for Nothing is as Nippy as a Nimble Nonesuch
