Poetry By Jolene Belmain

Updated on January 10, 2015

Poetry: It can capture your heart

Poetry can be so easy to create. All you have to do is write down the emotions in your heart, add in your everyday life and, VOILA! You have created a genuine, heartfelt poem that people can relate to, and will read over and over. It is that easy.

Poems don't have to rhyme to be good, every person has a different style and they vary as much as the person who writes them.

Poetry can warm the heart. Write what is in yours.

Remembrance Day

This is the day which we remember,

remember the ones who've died.

The ones who went to war for us,

while we fought our own wars and cried.

Cried for the lost loves and family,

forever in our minds they will stick with us

and if the nations all decide to disagree

we will remember in case we must

do what they did,

understand what they understood,

live how they lived,

suffer how they suffered.

And if it ever comes to that,

we'll just pray that others will remember us

the way we remember those in our past.

On Remembrance Day we'll pray,

and remember.

This time of year

has struck once again

where the children of all,

everyone sends.

They run around

collecting candies and treats,

swerving from alley's

into the streets.

Scaring those

unsuspecting souls,

the witches, the vampires

the ghosts and the ghouls.

And when this exciting

night is all done

the children rush home

to see who has won.

Who has the most candy

and wonderful treats,

who can eat

most of their sweets.

Now there are wrappers

all over the floor,

one year from now

we'll do it once more.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween
Happy Halloween

Global Warming

From floods to drought

she tries to give us warning.

Volcano's; tornado's,

she's shows us

she's transforming.

Tsunami's; hurricane's; quakes,

she really is performing.

She's nature, yes,

but gets no rest

from all of this global warming.

      I especially like your Halloween poetry because in my opinion you've really put the joy and all the other emotions a child can experiment during that night. I like the rhythm of this poetry, it's fresh and pleasant!

      Thanks to all who have visited my poetry lens. I love to express my emotions and write what is in my heart... if I so much as touch one person a day with my poetry, then I have done my part.
