Adorable Love Poems for Kids About Cows, Friends and Valentines



"The Cow" from A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894)


The friendly cow all red and white,

I love with all my heart:

She gives me cream with all her might,

To eat with apple-tart.


She wanders lowing here and there,

And yet she cannot stray,

All in the pleasant open air,

The pleasant light of day;


And blown by all the winds that pass

And wet with all the showers,

She walks among the meadow grass

And eats the meadow flowers.




"Friends" by Abbie Farwell Brown (1871 - 1927)


How good to lie a little while And look up through the tree! The Sky is like a kind big smile Bent sweetly over me. The Sunshine flickers through the lace Of leaves above my head, And kisses me upon the face Like Mother, before bed. The Wind comes stealing o'er the grass To whisper pretty things; And though I cannot see him pass, I feel his careful wings. So many gentle Friends are near Whom one can scarcely see, A child should never feel a fear, Wherever he may be.




"Won't You" by Shel Silverstein (1930 - 1999)


Barbara's eyes are blue as azure,

But she is in love with Freddy.

Karen's sweet, but Harry has her.

Gentle Jane is going steady.

Carol hates me. So does May.

Abigail will not be mine.

Nancy lives too far away...

Won't you be my Valentine?
