Rhyming Poem for Kids - 4th of July (Independence day Fourth July)

Nursery Rhymes' Characters

Do you remember the cute li'l nursery rhymes?

The little lamb who followed Mary to her school, Johny who loved eating sugar and told lies to his Papa about it, or the clumsy Jack and Jill who fell from the hill? Well this poem will sure remind you, as all of them are going together for the carnival - its 4th of July.

So just find out how did they celebrate the independence day.

It's amazing how kids with their joy and and excitement add enthusiasm to the festivities. Without kids, no festival/event/occasion is same - the charm is just gone.

Happy 4th of July ePostcard

Celebrating the 4th of July

Mary and the lamb were headed to carnival nearby,
The celebrations were in air, it was the 4th of July,

In the way, Jack joined them, he'd a nice necktie,
Soon Jill came tumbling with little noisy cry,
There was a sparkle in each little shiny eye,
All were simply jubilant, it was the 4th of July,

Then came Johny's house, he was feeling shy,
So his papa came to accompany the li'l guy,
Suddenly they saw awesome fireworks in the sky,
The festive air was joyous on the 4th of July,

It was a long walk, their throats were so dry,
They got water and ice-cream, to again feel spry,
Jack spotted swings and gave an excited outcry,
All ran along, singing a song, for the 4th of July,

Johny ate sugar n sweets, his papa didn't deny,
Jill bought a big bucket, from a shop out-bye,
And Mary's lamb chewed off Jack's necktie,
Jack laughed out, buoyant on the 4th of July,

Kids were tired, they sat on a bench thereby,
And Johny's papa brought a large nice pie,
He told a soldier's story, then all said goodbye,
It was a brilliant day for all - the 4th of July.

I am using this for my Children's Literature class. I am supposed to find a poem about Independence Day that is appropriate for elementary aged children. This poem is well written and very creative. Well done!

Thanks, Elyse. Your comment made my day. Poetry is just my hobby, and this poem, I wrote it for fun for American Independence Day. It was challenging though, since I'm an Indian. Writing Independence Day poem for a foreign nation was a different experience.

I'm really deliriously happy, that my creation is worthy enough for little children to learn from... It's an amazing feeling. Thanks for posting this, and sharing it with me. Thank you so much.
