Family is a foundation in the lives of many, especially children. On this page we’ve gathered poetry with a familial theme. Families come in all different shapes, sizes, and constructs. Whatever the circumstance, being surrounded by the love and devotion of a committed family is one of life’s greatest gifts. Family poems come from the heart. We’ll be continuing to look for poetry that describes, encourages, celebrates, and encompasses anything to do with relatives. And as always, all poems will be kid friendly.
