God’s Children 3D Flipbook

Dear Readers:

God’s Children, Flip Book: This is a book of Children Poems I wrote and was illustrated by my daughter, Dahlia. The book consists of Sonnets, Hymns, Villanelles, Ballads, (Heroic) Couplets, Epigrams, Heterometric Rhymes, Odes, Biblical Free Verse, and other Forms of poetry, including ranges of prosody. It is appropriate for all ages.

It is mostly rhyming poetry and Christian based. Surely, I have not taken my verse to the Pulpit. Instead, I have composed contemporary poetry written for children with the message and fibers of Christian faith with its joy, kindness, peace and love with one’s self and others.

When you click on the link and flip through the pages, you may have to wait a minute for the images to upload. (Depending on your internet connection.) I hope you enjoy the book and I hope it inspires some of our children to enact on their own creative endeavors. It brought me great joy working with my daughter creating this book and I am super proud of her. The book was written for my daughter, and I also hope that every child knows how precious and sacred they are. 

Sincerely yours, Kate and Dahlia

You are My World, (update)

The poem in the left column (this column) is the more polished poem, the poem on the right hand column was what I started with.

When I look at you 
I see my world:

I know the dimple
on your cheek
was made from God’s temple.

I know all your laughs
like the sound of your voice –
You can’t split this love for you in halves

I know what will make
everything okay and what keeps you safe,
and with God’s protection he won’t forsake. 

I know at night
when I comb your hair,
your royalty is more bright
then your glowing night-light.

When I look at you
I see all of the miracles 
in you, with your soul 
and spirit from the heavens. 

I know your favorite
lullaby by heart –
each and every word, 
and every loving part.

Without you I wouldn’t
know how to find me
because you are the key
to all of me.

When I look at you
I see my world:

I know for instance
that only when you
are truly happy, your

dimple shows, I know
your laugh as well
as your tone of voice.

I know what will
make everything
for the moment

at least, okay.
I know at night
when I braid your

hair, how each
strand represents
the princess in you

and yet, the length
of miracles in you.
I know your favorite

lullaby by heart.
As far as the rest,
like the unknown

places I have heard
of, yet to travel,
is what the currency

would be without
you. I know that I
wouldn’t know

where to take us
for picnics or tea, or
the best spot

would be to feed
the birds. I wouldn’t
know where to

connect the old
me with the new
you, because that

is foreign, overseas
travel and I only
fly domestically.

Silly, Mr. Moon

Silly, Silly, Mr. Moon
it’s not afternoon –

It’s bedtime now
and time to take it slow.

So tell me a goodnight
story that show’s love,
forevermore and tonight.

Tell me about the stars
that should not be that far.

Explain the Planets like Mars
and even honking cars.

Make my bed with goose-down feathers
that keep me warm in this c-c-cold weather.

Make sure my socks are warm,
in this snowflake globe’s winter storm.

Sing me my last all day song
before I nod off all night long!
