21 Cute, Short, And Funny Valentine’s Day Poems For Kids

Your Valentine doesn’t need to be a sweetheart or a crush. Children share a close bond with their parents, grandparents, siblings, or best friends, and they can be their valentines too. Some thoughtful Valentine’s Day poems for kids can come in handy when trying to express their love for their close ones. Brooke Powers, a school teacher and blogger, shares a few fun Valentine’s poems her students wrote using only math vocabulary words. She says, “I have no idea where I got the idea but a few years ago on a whim, I decided to have the kids do it and I laughed for days over their creativity so it has become an annual tradition. I pretty much give them free reign over the assignment allowing them to work in groups or alone. Some students write real love poems while others take it the other way and write break-up poems which are usually quite comical. The only requirement is that they use 10 Common Core 7th grade math vocabulary words (i).”

Read this post as we bring some interesting Valentine’s poems that you can share with your kids. They may use the one they like the most to share with a loved one or can take inspiration and write one on their own.

Who I am I shall not say,
But I send you this bouquet.
With this query, baby mine:
“Will you be my Valentine?”

See these roses blushing blue,
Very like your eyes of hue;
While these violets are the red
Of your cheeks. It can be said.
Ne’er before was babe like you.

And I think it is quite true.
No one e’er before to-day
Sent so wondrous a bouquet
As these posies aforesaid–
Roses blue and violets red!

Sweet, repay me sweets for sweets–
‘Tis, your lover who entreats!
Smile upon me, baby mine–
Be my little Valentine!

– Eugene Field

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Carnations are sweet
And so are you.

And so are they
That send you this
And when we meet
We’ll have a kiss.

12. Veggie Valentine

You may not “carrot” all for me.
The way I care for you.
You may “turnip” your nose.
When I plead with you
But if your “heart” should “beet” with mine.
Forever “lettuce” hope
There is no reason in the world.
Why we two “Cantaloupe.”

13. The Kangaroo’s Courtship

“Oh, will you be my wallaby?”
Asked Mr. Kangaroo.
“For we could find so very many
Jumping things to do.
I have a pocket two feet wide.
And deep inside,
My dear, you’d ride—
Oh, come and be my bouncing bride,
My Valentine, my side-by-side
I am in love with you.”

– Jane Yolen

On Valentine’s day, I think of you, Mom;
I love you really a lot.
In my life, that’s full of many good things,
You’re the very best thing I’ve got!
It’s Valentine’s Day, so I want to say,
I’m the luckiest kid anywhere;
You’re the sweetest, greatest, best mom around.
And I want you to know I care!
Happy Valentine’s Day, Mom!

The little birds will know thou art.
Mine own true Valentine.

Winner, winner
of my heart
How I love you so!

away from you.
Please tell me you’ll be mine!

On this lovely day, I say,
let’s exchange

You make my heart beat willy-nilly;
When I’m with you, the world is hazy;

My need for you goes off the chart.
Will you be mine? Can I be thine?
Say you’ll be my Valentine!

And I come to visit thee,

And pretty flowers you’ll see.
