A Kindness Poem Party!

Today we are very lucky.  We have guests at The Poem Farm!.  Second grade teacher Mrs. LaMonaco and her poets from Brooks Hill Elementary School in Fairport, NY are visiting with their poems, all celebrating quiet kindnesses.  Last month I invited poets to share such poems, and I could not be more grateful that these young writers chose to do so.  

This is a lovely way to celebrate love and friendship and all of the good things that people do for us every day.  For more ways to do this, take a peek at all of the beautiful projects folks are taking on at the Global Kind Project.

Please enlarge this slideshow to see it well!

Thank you so much to Mrs. LaMonaco and to these poets for celebrating kindness with us today.  If you would be so kind, please leave them a comment with your thoughts. Happy almost Valentine's Day! 


Please share a comment below if you wish.


  1. It looks like you worked hard on these. Thank you for giving those pictures to us. We liked your poems. From, Mrs. Corbett's Grade 2 and 3 class.

  2. Dear Dear Poets,
    My name is barbara and I have been a poet who teaches poets for a long time. The Poets I taught were not as old as you but I know that just like theirs your beautiful poetry flies into the hearts of the people who read it and helps them feel beauty when they are sad. Please, please always write!!! I am so happy you had time with wonderful Amy❣️❣️

  3. I love KINDNESS COUNTS!. . . if we could just spread that would around America and the world. . . you may want to check out P.K. Halinan's book, HEARTPRINTS!

  4. We are so proud to be a part of Mrs LaMonaco's class. She is such a wonderful teacher who embodies kindess! Way to go! Margaret Curatolo

  5. Thank you, poets from Brooks Hill Elementary School,for thinking and writing about KINDNESS. Your words spread joy and gratitude, and I hope you will continue to write poems about many subjects. I like writing poems because I think taking time to write down thoughts makes them real!It catches them so I don't forget what is important.
