Poetry in a Pocket (Up to Age 12)

Join us in celebrating National Poetry Month in April by writing an original poem and submitting it to the Milford Library.

All poems written by children up to the age of 12 will be displayed in the children’s library. When you submit a poem you will be entered in a drawing. At the end of the month two names will be pulled with a chance to win a small prize and a free book. Poem in a pocket paper will be provided at curbside upon request, in the children’s library, or you may print a Poem in a Pocket Sheet PDF at home. This is available curbside or in-person. All entries must be submitted by April 30th.

Here are some examples of poetry that you may consider when starting your poem. You may also use another type of poem not listed below:
