Poems For Kids

Poetry is a literary composition that is recognized as an artistic expression of beauty or feelings through the word . A literary genre that can take the form of verse or prose. Poetry has evolved over time including more themes than love or war and has become one of the literary genres with the most followers.

Famous poems with rhyme and author – which one do you choose?

In ancient times , authored poems were dedicated to recounting the exploits and prowess of warriors in combat. In the Middle Ages a good number of romances arose, some poetic compositions that accompanied the music. The minstrels staged epic songs such as the Poema del Mío Cid. The poems were transmitted orally and underwent changes that could include the minstrels and the public, resulting in different versions. An isometric stanza is called when all the lines that compose it have the same measure , that is, they have the same number of syllables. However, it is called a heterometric stanza when they do not have the same number of syllables. In addition, the stanzas receive different names depending on the number of lines they have.. From 2 to 14 lines, and omitting those of 7, 9 and 11 (given their little or no tradition in Spanish), all the stanzas are classified. For example, of two stanzas it would be the couplet, of three the tercet, of four the quartet, the serventesio, the redondilla or the quatrain, of five verses the quintilla, the lira or the quintet, of six the sextet or the couplet of broken foot , of eight the octavilla, the copla de arte mayor or the real octave, of ten the tenth or spinel or of fourteen the sonnet.

types of rhyming poems

There are numerous types of rhyming poems , of which the best known in our tradition are the sonnet, the third, the quatrain, the lyre or the ballad.

the sonnet

The sonnet is a composition of 14 hendecasyllable lines (of 11 syllables), composed of two quatrains (4-line stanza) and two triplets (3-line stanzas). The birth of the sonnet is located in Sicily from where it passed to central Italy. In the fourteenth century Dante Alighieri's love sonnets, dedicated to his beloved Beatrice, were very important . But the most famous sonnetist of the century was the poet Petrarca in his Cancionero. Thanks to Petrarch it spread through European literatures. The sonnet is used in Spain by poets such as Lope de Vega, Góngora, Calderón de la Barca, Sor Juana or Cervantes who used the variant of sonnet with estrambote.

the triplet

Another of the best known stanzas is the triplet composed of 3 hendecasyllable lines, the first and the third with rhyme. One of the most used variants was the chained triplet used by Dante Alighieri in the Divine Comedy and which is made up of triplets that introduce a new consonant rhyme in its central verse in each triplet starting from the second: ABA BCB CDC DED EFE… Usually have three lines in each rhyme (except the initial and final rhymes, which have only two lines) and close with a final serventesio. A widely used stanza that was born in the Middle Ages but had its greatest success in the Renaissance that uses it in cultured poetry.

the quatrain

This stanza is composed of 4 eight-syllable lines (8 syllables each) in which the second and fourth lines have a consonant rhyme. A stanza of Castilian origin that in modern times is also used with assonance rhyme . What differentiates it from the serventesio is that the verses of the quatrain are minor art. There are varieties such as the imperfect quatrain, the asonatada or the heptasyllable.

The lyre

The lira is composed of five lines in which the first, the third and the fourth are seven syllables, and the second and fifth are hendecasyllables. The lyre was introduced to Italian literature by the poet Bernardo Tasso in his Amori (1534). In the Spanish lyric it was introduced by the poet Garcilaso de la Vega , with Ode to the flower of Gnido that he composed when he was in Naples between 1532 and 1536. This stanza takes its name from the term lira that appears in the first line of the poem. This stanza, which Garcilaso used only once, will be widely used by authors such as Fray Luis de León and San Juan de la Cruz.

The love

A composition that has an indefinite number of octosyllable lines with assonance rhyme in even lines and free rhyme in odd lines . The Old Romancero is made up of anonymous ballads made by the community in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries that come from the decomposition of medieval epic songs. They were spread orally and sung. The poets of the New Ballads that took place in the 16th to 21st centuries composed imitating the style of the old ballads and spread their texts in written form through manuscripts or printed as loose sheets . Collectors kept these ballads in manuscript songbooks, made up of sewn booklets, which were sometimes printed. The new Romancero enriched the metrics of the romance and sometimes adapted it to the form of a lyrics with a refrain.

the tenth

The tenth is a stanza of ten octosyllable lines with consonant rhyme distributed according to modality. Spinel takes its name from the Malaga poet Vicente Espinel at the end of the 16th century, in which the structure of rhymes of the tenth in abbaaccddc was established. There can only be pauses after even lines, particularly after the fourth. During the 17th and 18th centuries it was used by writers such as Lope de Vega and has been the favorite stanza of the Generation of 27 for poets such as Jorge Guillén or Gerardo Diego.

the ode

This composition is divided into equal stanzas and recounts the exploits of some characters . It was born in Ancient Greece where there were two types of odes: choral and sung with or without the accompaniment of a musical instrument. The odes of Pindar, Sago, Anacreon and Horace were famous. In Castilian poetry, the odes of Fray Luis de León, Garcilaso de la Vega, Juan Nicasio Gallego or Espronceda stand out . In addition, those of authors such as Víctor Hugo in France, Manzoni and Bernardo Tasso in Italy and in Chile the well-known Elemental Odes of Pablo Neruda are well known.

the couplet

A poetic composition composed of 3 or 4 eight-syllable lines that serves as a popular song . A characteristic form of the anonymous popular tradition but that has been used by writers such as Rafael Alberti or Federico García Lorca. The minor art couplets are distinguished , such as the romance quatrain, the seguidilla and the redondilla, and the major art couplets, which are couplets made up of eight lines with twelve syllables each . Of these verses, the first rhyme with the fourth, fifth and eighth, the second with the third and the sixth with the seventh.

the eclogue

It is a bucolic poem usually with a pastoral or country theme that deals with the love between shepherds . Sometimes the characters dialogue as if it were a small theatrical piece. The first eclogues were the Idylls of Theocritus but it was the Latin writer Virgil who made them famous by adding autobiographical elements. In his works the protagonists are shepherds who, although they are imaginary characters, cover up some real character. The genre was revived in the Renaissance with Bocaccio and Jacopo Sannazaro's Arcadia. In Castilian literature , authors such as Juan de la Encina, Garcilaso de la Vega, Juan Boscán, Lope de Vega and Juan Meléndez Valdés stood out for their eclogues .

the elegy

The elegy is a long poem in which the poet expresses a feeling of pain, melancholy and sadness . The elegy can be written in free verse or in triplets. The Greek and Latin poets, in addition to sad themes, dealt with other pleasant ones in their elegies. It was used by authors such as Solon, Archilochus, Janophanes, Mimnermo or Dionysus Calco. The heroic elegy refers to when the tragedy is collective. In Spain, the Coplas on the death of his father by Jorge Manrique , Lament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías by Federico García Lorca or Elegy to Ramón Sijé by Miguel Hernández are famous.

the zejel

It is a stanza of Arab origin , introduced in Spain through Al-Andalus, which used to be accompanied by music. It consists of a chorus of two verses, which is followed by another three verses rhyming with each other (movement) and a fourth (return), which rhymes with the rhythmic sounds from before, which belongs to the chorus, thus announcing its repetition. All verses are octosyllables

Other famous poems with an author in Spanish

Other famous poems also stand out, such as the soleá or the copla de pie quebrado . The soléa is a verse with minor art verses and assonance rhyme in the first and third verses. A poem typical of Andalusian popular poetry and whose theme is usually loneliness or disappointment. Authors such as Federico García Lorca used this stanza. The copla de pie quebrado is a stanza that combines octosyllable and tetrasyllable verses with consonant rhyme . It follows the following fixed layout: 8a 8b 4c 8a 8b 4c. It was widely used by the writer Jorge Manrique in his work Coplas a la muerte de su padre . They are also called “manriqueñas”.

Reading comprehension

What is reading comprehension?

The dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy defines the word reading as "The interpretation of the meaning of a text". Reading a text does not imply that we are understanding its content, one reason may be that we do not know the meaning of some words or that we do not interpret what the author wants to express, but another reason may be that we are not concentrating, we can read and think about something else at the same time, we must correct this problem from school age by promoting reading comprehension strategies. An ideal way to encourage reading as a daily habit in the little ones is through short kids stories like the ones we offer for free at Kahniyan.


Reading comprehension is the ability to understand what is read, taking into account the global understanding of the text and also the understanding of words. When we read we activate the ability to understand, that is, learn the relevant ideas of a text and relate them to the concepts that already have meaning for the reader. The  written text  today has reached enormous importance (press, advertisements, instant messages, work environment, etc.), in some specific cases it has  displaced oral language , as is the case with the new smartphones and all their messaging utilities. . Reading comprehension is an essential part of  correct cultural literacy  that allows the kids to incorporate into society and adult life. This must be encompassed in various contexts and with varied types of texts that can start with the most significant narrative for kids such as stories and poetry and continue with more complex texts close to science. Our short proverbs for kids can also be of great help to you , an extensive compilation of popular sayings with which the little ones can improve their reading comprehension, work on their memory and learn to recite the ones they like the most.

Comprehension of texts is of vital importance in learning, starting from the comprehension of simple sentences to that of more complex texts. In this sense,  it is necessary to choose the most suitable readings for kids, those that adapt to the level indicated for their age. In addition, they must be attractive, since this ensures that the kids pays attention to what he reads and is able to explain it later. So it is advisable to use short and pleasant paragraphs, which keep the kids interested. Achieving a correct development of reading comprehension is a task that must take into account the different elements that accompany the text  and that, as a whole, give it a global meaning, allowing the creation of reading comprehension exercises of high pedagogical value. Once this is done, and based on its elaboration and purpose, the primary student will reach a conclusion related to its characteristics and literary conventions.

Difference between a saying and a proverb

Although today we know them as synonyms, linguistically they present notable differences: the proverb handles cultured expressions and of a certain complexity, in addition to the fact that, in general, we group them according to their geographical origin. While the proverb has a popular and informal essence, and its diffusion is massive, especially in the Spanish language.

Seven characteristics to identify them

  1. The authors are usually unknown, since passing from generation to generation are undergoing modifications. But there are also biblical and literary phrases that have become part of the popular proverb.
  2. Its theme is as broad as the language itself. We assure you that you can find a saying for any situation you think of.
  3. They show part of the idiosyncrasy of a country, so although many Spanish-speaking countries share the same proverbs, it is likely that they do not have the same meaning or the same words.
  4. Its purpose is to convey some message of warning, advice or teaching.
  5. Being short phrases, colloquial language, with rhythm and rhyme, their memorization and repetition are quite simple.
  6. Although they do not always rhyme, their structure is based on literary figures such as antithesis or parallelism. Also in prose and verse, which facilitates learning and repetition.
  7. Incredible as it may seem, they arise from specific places and periods that make that situation a moment immortalized in history through a clever phrase.

Types of proverbs and sayings

They can be grouped into four large categories and from these comes an endless number of subcategories:

1.According to the content

It can be about friendship, life, nature, heartbreak... some of the most popular and that you have surely heard are:

1.1 Life:

  • To bad weather, good face: its objective is to make the child understand that he should not give up or get depressed in the face of life's adversities, that he should take everything with positivism and a good attitude because of the bad times we go through, he is one of those who the more we learn.
  • Shoemaker to your shoes: teaches him that he should not get involved in other people's affairs and should only give his opinion on what he understands and affects him directly. It is said that it originated in the fourth century BC when a shoemaker criticized the Greek painter Apelles, who fell on him with this iconic phrase.
  • Flies do not enter a closed mouth: although the origin of this saying is not known precisely, it is believed that it dates back to the 14th century and is of Arabic-Andalusian origin. And its objective is to make the person understand that it is better to be silent than to have to apologize for what is said.
  • Who gets up early, God helps: it is a recommendation to be diligent in everything you do to be successful. It is a phrase that finds a literary modification in "Don Quixote": "He who does not get up early with the sun, does not enjoy the day."
  • Asking you get to Rome: ideal for children who are shy when wanting to answer questions. Its purpose is to make them understand that it is okay to ask for explanations or clarifications before any question that arises.

1.2 Nature:

  • Like this, like a chip: it is a phrase to explain that everything resembles its origin: children inherit the appearance and behavior of their parents. Although it is not known who invented this hilarious phrase, José María de Pereda used it in one of his works as a title in 1885.
  • Year of snow, year of goods: if the children complain about the weather, you can use this saying that tries to predict that prosperous times are approaching.
  • Although the mona dresses in silk, mona stays: she tries to teach that we cannot hide who we are by changing our exterior. It is a phrase that is often modified a lot since the word "mona" is considered offensive by some, so the sentence is omitted or changed to: " The habit does not make the monk ."

1.3 Studies:

  • Books and years make a wise man: it is a saying that explains to the child that only through experience and education can the knowledge necessary to be a wise and educated person be achieved.
  • Doing and undoing you learn: it is ideal if you are learning some craft, since it teaches the little ones that all learning involves a process of trial and error until perfection is achieved.
  • What is well learned is known forever: perfect if you want to encourage them to learn because if they study with dedication, effort and interest, the knowledge will take hold in their memory and they will be able to use it in their lives.

2. According to the theme that inspires you

It encompasses a large subcategory of sayings that depend on the nature where they were born. Among the most popular themes you can find:

2.1 Religious:

  • Santa Rita, what is given, is not taken away: it teaches that what is given as a gift cannot be asked for in return. Its origin is imprecise, but it is known through a legend that a maiden asked this Saint for a boyfriend, and her wish was granted, but shortly after he escaped and the maiden went to claim with this ingenious phrase.
  • God squeezes, but does not suffocate: it is a phrase that advises us to always trust in the will of God and that he does not give us more burden than we can carry.
  • To God praying and with the mallet giving: its original meaning is that it is good to entrust ourselves to God, but we must do our part so that everything goes according to our wishes. Although currently it has a literary meaning, since it is said to people who pray to God and in turn harm others. Since 1929 it is a saying that is widely used and its meaning varies according to the context and the person who says it.

2.2 Romantics:

  • The strong heart overcomes misfortune: it explains that one must not collapse in the face of difficult circumstances, but must take them with courage.
  • Each sheep with its partner: advises us to look for a partner with similar tastes to ours. Although its origin is not known, its first documentation was in the Book of Sayings and Sentences of Mosén , by Pedro Vallés in 1549.
  • On Tuesday neither get married nor embark: it is a rather superstitious phrase, which considers Tuesday as bad luck, so it is recommended not to do anything important or risky. This is said because it is associated with Mars, the god of war in Greek mythology, so we assume that this phrase dates from before Christ.
  • Esteem and opportunity are good for the heart: it means that we only appreciate people when we miss them. It is not a saying that is widely used today, but it does perfectly teach the little ones to value the people they love the most.

2.3 Christmas:

  • On Christmas Eve and Christmas, the grill in the house is hotter: it is a sentence widely used to indicate that this festive season is when the best dinners are prepared to share with the family. It also advises to share with ours what we have taking advantage of this festivity.
  • Christmas is sharing and donating: say this phrase to the little ones in the house so that they learn that the meaning of Christmas is not gifts and copious dinners, but rather it is about getting closer to the family and sharing what they have with the least favored.
  • Whoever you see in espadrilles for Christmas, do not ask how they are: advice that tells you not to make prejudiced comments to people who have financial problems at this time. It is ideal that you tell children who like to show off their gifts so that they learn a little humility.

3. According to its extension

This is an additional category where it is classified according to the number of words that the saying has. Although they are short sentences, some are modified so much that their length grows or shortens in the process. Such is the case of:

3.1 Long proverbs:

  • Good bearing and good manners open main doors: it means that as long as we are polite and take care of our appearance, we will have a chance of getting what we are looking for. It's a saying you can say to little ones when you're trying to teach them manners.
  • Fortune is a pile of sand: one wind brings it and another takes it away: it teaches that money and luck are not everything in life and that we must be humble.
  • Who comes close to a good tree, good shade shelters him: he is very popular and explains that it is an advantage to have good interpersonal relationships with people of influence.

3.2 Short proverbs:

  • Laziness, poverty key: ideal if you want to teach children that everything they want they must get with effort and work.
  • Two don't fight if one doesn't want to: it is advice for the little ones to always keep calm and they will be victorious in any situation of discord that comes their way.
  • All that glitters is not gold: the purpose of this saying is for them to learn that not everything that seems good really is.

4. idiomatic expressions

They are referential value sentences that represent an image of something concrete and whose literal meaning differs from what is really being expressed. That is, it is an expression not linked to its literal meaning, but rather to the situation in which it occurs. Some examples of these types of proverbs are:
  • More lost than Turkish in the mist: its objective is to indicate that a person is disoriented. Although its origin is uncertain, it is believed that it dates back to the time when the Muslims invaded Spain, since in bars it was customary to call pure wine Turkish wine and who could be more lost than a drunk in the fog? this hilarious expression.
  • Don't look a gift horse in the teeth: it teaches us not to look for flaws in the gifts we receive, but on the contrary, to show ourselves grateful and flattered by the gesture. It arises from the age of the equine, since through its teeth the state of health and age of the animal can be identified.
  • Old horse does not learn new trot: it means that older people are difficult to change in the way of doing certain things, due to the habits already acquired.

Its importance in culture

The first thing is that they learn to identify with their roots and this favors the communicational and cultural connection between the speaker and the child. In addition, proverbs enrich speech, contribute to narrative compression and creation, and foster identity in a society that is kept alive in memory through its sayings. Through these they can summarize a situation, make warnings, give advice and are more closely linked to their feelings and thoughts, which helps the child's psychic development, so we recommend that they be taught from an early age.
