Find a Poem That Says it All in Fewer Words

Click below to explore our selection of poetry.

Alliteration Poems : This is a special form of verse where we find identical consonants at the start of each stressed syllable. An example - Above the apothecary, the amazing amoeba alighted. Not easy to write, but a pleasure to read. Enjoy this delightful collection from the writers at My Word Wizard

Alliteration Poems For Kids : Kids love to be creative and explore their imaginations. That's why we've crafted our special alliteration collections just for kids. This genre is unique in that it utilizes the same sound at the start of each stressed syllable in a poem. An example - "The barking beagle bounced the ball." Remember, just because the letters are identical doesn't make it an alliterative line. "Giant" and "Gum" both start with "G", but they don't have the same sound. You'll get the hang of it!

More Alliteration Poetry : We've had so many requests for this type of poetry, that we've challenged the writers at My Word Wizard to come up with more delightful examples of this poetic form. If you liked the first round, you'll love this assortment.

Even More Poems with Alliteration : We can barely keep up with your requests for more of these adorable verses! Don't worry, we love a good challenge! The writers at My Word Wizard have really outdone themselves with this fabulous collection of words that drip, drop, and duke it out! We remind you that the sound of the letter at every stressed syllable must be the same in order for a line to be alliterative. "Snack" and "Shower" both start with the letter "S", but they don't have the same sound. "Cough" and "Kitten" do not begin with the same letter, but they do alliterate because they share the identical sound. Enjoy!

Short Cute Love Poems : Sometimes it doesn't take many words to express how you feel. If you are a person of big feelings, and few words, check out this collection of short cute love poems.

Short Easter Poem : This delightful collection of short verses about Holy Week commemorate the various traditions of the season. Here you'll find religious as well as more secular sentiments to mark the significance and meanings of the holiday.

Short Funny Love Poems : See our collection of short, humorous poems that will not only express your love, but are guaranteed to make anyone smile...maybe even laugh.

Short Inspirational Poems : Sometimes all it takes are a few encouraging words to completely change somebody's mood. Our uplifting sentiments will let them know they can achieve anything they set out to do and that things will be ok.

Short Poems for Kids : They are short. They are sweet. They are My Word Wizard's collection of short poetry written for and about kids. These wonderful poems capture the nuances of the child's everyday experiences in ways they can really identify with.

Short Rhyming Love Poems : Rhymes, poetry and love all go hand in hand. Here are some of our favorite short rhyming poems.

Short Rhyming Poems : Our collection of small verse covers everything from humor, love, weather, food and more. No need to be long winded when brevity is in order. We hope you enjoy these short poems.

Short Romantic Love Poems : You are a person of few words, with a huge heart. Express your love and bring your romantic feelings to the surface with one of our shorter romantic poems.
