A Few Labor Day Poems For Kids

Updated on January 31, 2017

About Labor Day

A few labor day poems for kids will help you get off to a good start to a Labor Day celebration. Labor Day is always celebrated on the first Monday in September. This special time denotes a restful and fun time for each and every hardworking American.Canadians celebrate this holiday on the same day as well.

Other countries, Australia, Jamaica, New Zealand, Trinidad and Tabago also celebrate Labor Day, but they do so on different months and days. In Australia depending on where you live, Labor Day may be celebrated on the first Monday in October, the first or second Monday in March or the first Monday in May.

It's fun to have poems to remind us of our hard work and dedication to build this America, Canada and other realms. I hope you enjoy these few poems, and feel free to add any labor day poems for kids you might want to share.

A Nation's Strength

Not gold, but only man can make

A people great and strong;

Men who, for truth and honor's sake,

Stand fast and suffer long.

Brave men who work while others sleep,

Who dare while others fly--

Thy build a nation's pillars deep

And lift them to the sky.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


Work while you work,

  Play while you play;

One thing each time,

  That is the way,

All that you do,

  Do with your might;

Things done by halves

  Are not done right



The fisher who draws in his net too soon,

Won't have any fish to sell;

The child who shuts up his book too soon,

Won't learn any lessons well.

If you would have your learning stay,

Be patient--don't learn too fast;

The man who travels a mile each day,

May get round the world at last.
