Things to Do Poems

  • “Things to do if you are the Sun”

    By Bobbi Katz

    Let planets loop around you.

    Be Earth’s very own star.

    Keep things warm enough for people.

    Keep things cool enough for penguins.

    Slip away to end the day.

    Light the moon at night.

    Let people and animals sleep.

    And at the crack of dawn,

    wake up the world!


    The above poem is from a poetry book that I recently added to my collection: Falling Down the Page: A Book of List Poems edited by Georgia Heard. This is a special kind of list poem that can be written about anything you can think of. To read more poems like this click here:
