Dear Students,

How do you study English these days? English helps people communicate with each other all over our beautiful world.


You can learn English in many ways. Maybe you study in a class with a teacher.  Maybe you study on your own now. Poems can help you.


You can read my poems with a class, your family, or a friend. You can read these poems aloud and record them with your phone or another way. Maybe you will write a story, a poem, or write about your ideas in your journal after you read one of my poems.


Some of my poems are easier, like the poem, "Sitting  Here." Some poems give you more vocabulary and ideas, like the poem, "The Content of Your Character." All of the poems can help you learn English. 


Good luck and happy learning!


Kind regards, 



Here is a link to 12 poems.


Here is a free pdf booklet of some poems to download.


I live in California, USA. Email me about poetry and language learning |
