So many enchanted places we're whisked away to by the vivid words of poetry. This page is dedicated to fairies but you may come across other enchanted creatures of that charming realm of imagination. Like every other page on this site, we will be constantly adding new poems and stories. If you have any you'd like to see added, please let us know.
For some kids (and adults) imagining an enchanted forest filled with unusual creatures opens up a new world of adventure. The possibilities are endless and to be able to leave the ordinary world behind and venture into a magical unknown alleviates the stresses of the real world. And through the ages poets have imagined enchanted realms in their poetry, telling stories and envisioning wild landscapes peppered with fairies, trolls, and brownies.
In our Fairy Poems for kids section on Rainy Day Poems we’re collecting an array of poetry that encompasses the imaginative enchantment that fairies bring along with all of the other creatures that inhabit this fantasy world.
You’ll find poems about every kind of fairy, from happy to sad, mischievous to helpful and silent to singing. There are giants, dwarves, ogres, dragons and many more mystical creatures to be found in poetry. All ages of kids can find poems that they’ll love from short to long and complicated to simple.
In the short poem The Lonesomest Fairy, a sad little sprite sits down and cries for lonesomeness. You can go ‘up the airy mountain and down the rushy glen’ in search of ‘little men’ and find an entire enchanted longer poem in the classic The Fairies. There are poems of Catching Fairies hidden underneath the soft flower petal or in the garden and even fairy lullabies to read before bed. Children who love fairies will find all kinds of imaginative possibilities in the Fairy Poems section.
For kids and parents who like elves, dwarves, giants or even mermaids and mermen, there are many other enchanted creatures represented in imaginative detail in the Fairy Poems section. A giant jumps right off the page in The Picture-Book Giant, or imagine a satyr child getting upset because they can’t have the moon as a toy in the Satyrs and the Moon. The possibilities are endless in the world of fantasy and poets bring that world to life in their poems. Make a habit of reading a poem to a child and open the doors to a world of enchantment.
